Mountain Stream, Pyrenees No 2
In the mid 1960s, Peter Coker employed a square format to create a number of monumental compositions from aqueous motifs. When he combined the format with a high viewpoint, taking in little or no sky, the result was often simultaneously economical, forceful and intriguing. This was equally true whether the subject was drawn locally from East Anglia or, as here, from places in France.
