Chartwell Notes

"This was bought from Stuart Purvis's gallery, Australian Galleries in Melbourne. It was memorable as on the same day we bought an important John Olsen work too. For NZ eyes this Boyd is a major work, made in-situ, on the side of the river, deals with bathers, surrealist ideas, people in the landscape. I found out that Purvis' mother was NZ born- she started the gallery.' RG
