David Evans (1929–1988):
Rock Band, circa 1970
Unmounted (ref: 2938)
Watercolour, 25 x 38 in. (64 x 96 cm.)
Provenance: Laporte Corporate Collection
Evan’s early work consisted mostly of photomontages and mural paintings. His large-scale watercolours and gouaches date from 1967 onwards, and many of them were exhibited at the series of solo exhibitions held at the Redfern Gallery from 1979. The influence of Edward Burra is obvious, but Evans’ work remained highly distinctive and the subject matter contemporary.
