Tropical Fish

This is a painting which has never been seen in public before.  It’s a watercolour, just under 6″ square and is still part of a sketch book.  It seems to be finished – and remember Terry, particularly when younger, painted for the sheer joy of his art – but could be a sketch for a later (presently unknown) oil painting.  There are a number of oil paintings that sort of size of fish, although they tend to be abstracts rather than this lifelike drawing.

The watercolour is unsigned and dates to the late 40’s or early 50’s.
