Abstract oil painting on paper from 1961, signed and dated. Heath is a celebrated artist, connecting the St Ives School (he met Terry Frost in a Prisoner of War camp) and British Constructivism which culminated in him evolving and creating more abstract work. He was key in championing abstraction and organised many exhibitions with contemporaries such as Roger Hilton. His work evolved again to become looser and less rigid like this fantastic example.

Adrian Heath, born in Burma in 1920 (d. 1992), moved to England aged five and eventually became an important British artist. During his career, Heath connected the St Ives School and British Constructivism which led to more Constructivist and abstract work. He was key in championing abstraction and organised many exhibitions with contemporaries such as Roger Hilton. He exhibited at London galleries and then more widely globally. His work evolved again to become looser and less rigid and he also worked with collage. During World War 2 he met Terry Frost in a POW camp and taught him to paint. He also taught at art school with great enthusiasm, encouraged his students and continued to champion the arts. His work is highly collectable and is held in many public collections and museums around the world.
