Alan DavieTiger is Joyful
Signed, inscribed & dated August 1960 verso
Also inscribed 'Bili Davie Collection'
Davie's interest in Zen Buddhism inspired his search for free expression of the unconscious mind. His paintings were entirely spontaneous and intuitive, many having no pre-considered composition or even titled until completed. The tiger's tail was a recurring motif throughout the 1960s.
