Farmer's Wife No. 2 (Jazz Musician and Lady) 1957
  • Scottish Art
This is one of a group of paintings made from 1956-7 which feature male and female figures and have strongly sexual overtones. ‘Farmer's Wife No. 2’ was, like all the works of the period, done spontaneously and with no premeditated idea of what image might result. In the 1950s Davie often mixed grit into the paint, creating crusty surface textures, as seen here.
