Additional Information

This piece is one of 30 abstract oil paintings in a series Williams painted in response to the music of the Russian composer Dmitri Shostakovich. Aubrey Williams was a great admirer of the work of Shostakovich, who he considered to be the greatest composer of his time. First encountering his music as a teenager had a dramatic effect on the artist, who felt that it expanded his idea of what it meant to understand human consciousness and art, making him ‘feel colour’.

Aubrey Williams (1926 – 1990) was an artist born in Georgetown, Guyana. He began painting at an early age, and moved to London in 1952, and studied at Saint Martin’s School of Art. He is best known for his large-scale oil paintings, which blend abstract expressionism with forms, images and symbols inspired by the pre-Columbian art of indigenous peoples of the Americas. He co-founded the Caribbean Artists Movement together with a group of London-based Caribbean artists and intellectuals. Four of his works form part of the Tate collection.
