Provenance; Sandra Blow Studio Sale, Lot 61, Thomas Barnes Auctions, St.Ives, 24th June 2018.
These Sandra Blow works were all acquired at the Studio sale. They are mostly late period collages; the family advised us these were among the very last works she produced. The comparison with Matisse is apposite, she was arranging pre-coloured paper or card into collages in the same manner as the “papiers découpés” to which Matisse devoted his last years.
