Peter Adam and then by descent
Adam was a renowned British Filmmaker and BBC producer, writer, art specialist and collector of Modern Art. He wrote Eileen Gray: Her Life and Work: The Biography (2009); Outlines: David Hockney (1997) and Art of the Third Reich (1997).
This work is believed to depict a member of No 9 Company washing themselves. They lived at first in tents and later in Nissen huts and had few amenities.
We are grateful to Gerard Hastings for his assistance in cataloguing this lot.
