PROVENANCE:
Acquired from the artist

'The fantastic heads of mythical personae that she painted must have had their beginnings in the heads carved in the intaglios. Heads have always been a source of fascination and inspiration to Agar ever since she painted her self-portrait...in the mid-twenties... They blossomed forth in vibrant colours with their dynamic form and communicated her delight in the design of old stones.'

Allen Freer (from Eileen Agar – Angel of Audacity, unpublished manuscript, 1998)
