Tony Tuckson

TP 597, 1952-56, oil in cardboard, 63.5 x 45 cm.
The exhibition, Figures, by Tony Tuckson currently on show at Watters Gallery, Sydney, is a selection of small and medium sized works on mostly cardboard from the early to mid-1950s. You get a glimpse of the later pure lyrical abstraction which was to come in the 1960s and 70s from the work TP 597, 1952-56, whilst others indicate Tuckson is still negotiating various influences including Pablo Picasso and Henri Matisse.
