Gear, William 1915-1997 British AR, Abstract. 9 x 10.5 ins., (23 x 26.75 cms), Gouache, Signed and Dated 1992.
William Gear has been one of the forgotten artists of British twentieth century art. He was the only member of the vibrant Cobra group and as a consequence is far better known on the continent than here. Recently there was a major retrospective exhibition of his work in the Towner Gallery, Eastbourne gaining him some well deserved recognition.
