Untitled [‘Home with a Column’] 1998 [W/P]

Synthetic polymer paint on paper, 74.5 x 54
Signed and dated [l.r., within image: ‘Howard Arkley 98’]
Coll.: unknown

A cursory variant of the composition first used for Stucco House (1988), and then again for several later works, notably Floriated Residence (1994).

This is one of a group of late Arkleys acquired in about 1998, and subsequently sold at auction. It is unclear whether the title ‘Home with a Column’ is original.
