Mum

This picture is a small sketch of Terry’s mother: it’s labelled simply, “Mum” in his portfolio, but is not signed.  Never exhibited, or even mounted, this is a private watercolour by the artist which he saved in a bound portfolio.  It’s relatively small no more than about 6″ across.  It probably dates from about 1953.  All the indications are that it was painted casually at home and was not a posed portrait.
