Jingling Space Dated 1950
  • Scottish Art
After a nine-month period of travel in Europe from 1948-9, Davie settled near London. He lived mainly off sales of his jewellery and occasional evening work as a jazz musician. Following the automatic drawing methods he had initiated in his monotypes, Davie began painting in an entirely spontaneous, unpremeditated way. This approach may be compared to jazz music.
