About the artist
About the artwork
This painting is one of a series Kossoff made between 1969 and 1972 of a swimming pool in Willesden Sports Centre, where he took his children in the summer. The many drawings he used as his reference were done in an overlooking café, were he enjoyed the changing noise, activity and light levels of the pool. The light tones and relatively thin paint add to the carefree sense of movement and activity.

About the artist
Leon Kossoff is a British painter, born in 1926 in Islington, London. Evacuated to Norfolk during WWII, the couple he lived with encouraged his interest in art, and painted his first works. He studied at Saint Martin’s School of Art and at the Borough Polytechnic under David Bomberg. At Borough Kossoff met Frank Auerbach, who became a close friend and important influence on his work. His impasto, Expressionist paintings are mostly of subjects with a personal connection, such as areas around his home in London and members of his family and friends.
