Title

Study for 'Exit right, laughing'

1996


Artist

James Gleeson

Australia

21 Nov 1915 - 20 Oct 2008


About

The first study for this drawing is in the AGNSW's Gleeson 'Sketchbook 3'. The detailed depiction of an ornate vase or urn at the centre of this drawing is transformed into an ambiguous organic form in the related painting. More commonly in his late work Gleeson collages such 'realist' elements, rather than draws them.
