          Patrick Heron's abstract still life painting with fruit, vase and bowls. The attention to colour in this early still life by Heron reflects his enthusiasm for the work of Bonnard and Matisse. The ceramics depicted were produced by the Leach pottery, where Heron worked during the Second World War.
