Lot Essay


Sir Nicholas Goodison commented: ‘This piece shows the influence of Moore, especially his liking for enclosed figures, which was a feature of Meadows’ work in the early 1950s. I originally bought it for TSB Group, Christie’s 11 June 1992, and bought it again when Lloyds TSB decided to sell many of the works of art. It stood in my offices in Milk Street and Lombard Street.'
