November 2019, Drawings found on the reverse of Prendergast painting
We were very grateful to Professor Tony Curtis who last month highlighted us to some drawings on the back of one of Peter's paintings, now owned by Arfon Haines Davies. The drawings are particularly personal as they show Lesley and their oldest two children, observed in the family home, Gerlan in 1974. Branwen is seen reading 'Little Women'. In his characteristic scrawl, next to this drawing Peter has written 'Drawn by L. Prendergast'. It would appear that the drawings of Lesley are by Peter, the drawings of the children by Lesley!
Special thanks to Arfon Haines Davies for arranging for the painting to be unframed for photographing and Haf Weighton's kindness in taking the photographs.
