Bratby, John Randall 1928-1992 British AR, Patti Seated. 30.25 x 25 ins., (76.25 x 63.5 cms.), Oil on Canvas, Signed. Bratby had at last overcome his desperation after being dumped by Diane, when he married and emotionally settled with Patti Prime. This is an interesting painting fairly early on in their marriage, where his attempts 'to beat Sickert' with clashing colours was beginning to be tamed. Of course he never could beat Sickert,as he admitted, he was far too imbued with the disciplines of colour harmony.
