This early Greaves still life has great provenance; exhibited at the Zwemmer Gallery, London, 1960 and at the Whitworth Gallery Manchester , Burra, Greaves and Dalwood, Nov-Dec 1959.

Label verso, Zwemmer Gallery.

Painted in the  "transition years" (1958-1962) when Greaves was emerging from the Social Realism of his Kitchen Sink period and moving from imagery based on nature and observable fact to his  more studio-bound imaginative constructs of 1960's Pop Art.
Derrick Greaves portraitDerrick Greaves is one of the most important British painters of the last half century, initially gaining acclaim in the 1950s when he represented Britain at the Venice Biennale along with the other ‘Kitchen-Sink’ painters with whom he was associated. Born in Sheffield in 1927, Greaves apprenticed for five years as a sign-writer, before winning a scholarship to the Royal College of Art where he studied from 1948-52.

During the ’60s his work moved away from the social realism of his previous pieces, taking on instead a more stylised approach. His work is prominently displayed in the world’s most prestigious public galleries, including the Tate Gallery, the Contemporary Arts Society, the Arts Council of Great Brittan and the New York Public Library.
