Gordon Walters by Theo Schoon

Artwork Detail

'My period of close association with Theo Schoon began when I first met him in June or July 1941… We had become friends because our tastes in art tended to coincide, and I was able at this time to profit from Theo’s larger experience and training in Europe…. from 1946 – 1949 Theo had been engaged in recording South Island rock drawings…. I shared his enthusiasm for these works and for a time they had an influence on my painting.'
