Taking shape in the jumble of coloured lines are the figures characteristic of Karel Appel’s work: children with large eyes, and imaginary creatures with beaked snouts. In this painting they ‘meet’ one another: nothing else is actually going on. The picture is in first place about an artist’s delight in painting and the freedom to conjure up a wondrous new world with paint alone.

On display in room 3.3 Karel Appel Cobra
