"I try and stay away from the internet! Stupidly, when we first started I looked up something on the internet and it was bad. So I’ve taken a step back. If there’s anything people are or aren’t happy with, you kind of end up finding out about it some way anyways."

Girl Reading (verso) (c.1930). Philip Naviasky (British, 1894-1983). Oil on board. Pannett Art Gallery.
The present work exemplifies Naviasky’s technique of combining patches of bold, saturated colouring against plain backgrounds in a way that illuminates his subjects. Naviasky’s technical accomplishment can be further appreciated in the way two seemingly different colour choices (back wall and coat) blend as corresponding colours.
