Painting is very much like improvising on a piano ' sitting down and playing, an idea will appear out of putting one note against another, which leads to other notes and before you know where you are, a melodic line has appeared and a harmonic structure presents itself.
Alan Davie

The Directors of Thomas Dane Gallery in collaboration with The Paragon Press are pleased to present paintings from 1955-1967, a seminal period in Alan Davie's practice.

Regarded as one of the most influential British artists and a pivotal link between post-war European art and American abstract expressionism, Davie has persistently pursued a personal pictorial vocabulary based on spontaneity and improvisation. This exhibition brings together 26 early landmark paintings from an important transitional period within the artist's 65 year career.
