A modified variant of Model Tudor Village, Fitzroy Gardens (1986); this work was apparently exhibited in HA Bellas 5/94. It was in the artist’s collection at his death (archive photo, details), and was then sold in 2004. The work was subsequently auctioned in 2007, as ‘Tudor Village c.1986’; however, the auction catalogue photo leaves no doubt as to its identity and date. The stencilled background patterning of the hills is consistent with other works dating from 1994.
