The 1950s is considered Alan Davie’s most successful and innovative decade and this energetic self-portrait, painted in 1959, encapsulates the best of that era with its beautifully bright colouration and free brushwork. Vibrant greens, pinks and yellows as well as bold black lines encircle each other to recreate the frantic movement of the birds.
