Anita Mills, who has contributed the chapter on drawing to the forthcoming Lund Humphries monograph, wrote to me yesterday pointing out that the composition of a recent painting reaches back into my long-past life as a stage designer. She put together a couple of images that it would never have crossed my mind to compare, and I’m rather astounded by what she’s discovered. I offer her observation by way of a footnote to yesterday’s Little Shop of Horrors post. Over twenty five years separate the stage design sketch and the painting shown below it.
