diagrams of love: marriage of eyes


Watercolour. 7¼ x 4¼in. (18.4 x 10.8cm.) Titled on the reverse. Provenance NT. This work is one of two watercolours and one pen and ink drawing that share substantially the same imagery. They show Colquhoun experimenting with the configuration and colouring of the conjoined pairs of eyes that appear in other works of the period, in particular Christian Marriage II (c.1942) and Christian marriage figure (1942).
