Abstract Composition (with string) (1936), Painting

David Francis Butterfield

Oil On Board

This painting by David Francis Butterfield is typical of the abstract compositions for which he became well know and quite popular in the 1930s. In this particular composition I see influences of that particular era of Yorkshire artists, not that surprising as Butterfields' known associates were the likes of Henry Moore and Barbara Hepworth. Odd you might think then that in his hay-day, Leeds City Art Gallery rejected his work. Possibly the wheels of power just not getting it, or maybe the internal politics of the day. At least now this piece takes its rightful place in the gallery's collection.
