- Curator's comments
- Made at Eerde, the Dutch Quaker School in Ommen, The Netherlands.
From a group of works donated by Julie Friedeberger, the artist's widow, in 2020. This drawing is from a subgroup of the gift, comprising 'juvenilia' - works produced when the artist was a refugee schoolboy at the Quaker school in Holland prior to his arrival in England in April 1939 when he lived briefly in Southampton before he was rounded up as an 'enemy alien' in June 1940 and transported to Australia on the 'Dunera' prison ship (2020,7038.27-33). The gift also included a group of drawings and watercolours made in internment camps in Australia in the early 1940s (2020,7038.13-26) and 12 monotypes made in the 1950s and early 1960s after the artist had returned to England (2020,7038.1-12).
