A series of related collage and mixed media works, almost all inspired by coastal scenery in Brittany, France, was shown at the Bear Lane Gallery in Oxford in 1961. Two examples were included at John Piper's Tate Gallery retrospective in November 1983 - January 1984 (nos. 148 and 149). The curator David Fraser Jenkins described the works as "a distinct group in format and technique, using the dispersed paint to represent the horizontal lines of the open landscape, and cut marbled papers to represent the features".
