One in the series entitled ‘Forms’, Blue, Black and Russet was produced by Alan Reynolds in the mid 1960s, about a decade after the other three of his works included here. A striking visual statement in itself, it also represents a transitional phase in the artist’s development, between his powerful, passionate Neo-Romantic landscapes and his cool, controlled constructions. Though clearly abstract, it retains the sophistication of colour and the delicacy of handling of his earlier watercolours, and still feels rooted in observation as well as composition. As such, it exemplifies the significant influence on his art of the Swiss-German Modernist, Paul Klee.
