The process of any artist’s practice is fascinating to us.

This lot falls within the early years of McEwen’s search for personal solutions to the colour-depth enigma. Others had tackled this quandary, too, and McEwen was certainly aware of the resolutions suggested by American colour field painters.

A diminutive composition measuring just 20 ins x 20 ins, Composition ‘62 was hammered down for a big price.
