Description

After arriving in Italy on a travelling scholarship in 1960, Whiteley harvested his artistic inspiration from visiting the many museums, galleries and churches throughout the country. Afterwards, In London, he produced a series of abstractions with which he strutted the world stage. One of the finest of these paintings – Untitled red painting 1960 – was bought by the Tate Gallery, making Whiteley the youngest artist to enter their collection at the time.
