A striking collection of some of the later works by the set designer and artist, Peter Snow (1927-2008). This range of abstract ink drawings highlight Snow's distillation of style in his later years in an eye catching array of colour and nods to the likes of Braques and other Cubist artist, all wrapped up with a modernist zeal. The collection comes from a portfolio by the artist, with a number of the drawings signed, inscribed and dated.
