Peter Clarke - District Six - 1950

Peter Clarke – District Six – 1950 – Gouache on Paper – Framed – Signed

This very early work is gouache on paper and references three generation of coloured people living within the walls of the group areas act / district six in 1950 . It makes reference to the hardships , loves and lives of people all living within an area as the young man stares directly at the viewer with a lost look of despair as he ponders the future .

The work was acquired directly from the artists private collection during a visit from the original owner who was personal fiends with the artist . His reluctance to sell the work was only overcome by who he was selling the work to. An important painting , by an important artist .
