Euan Uglow, Mosque at Ciftlike Koyou, 1966
Uglow spent the summer of 1966 in a semi-deserted village on the west coast of Turkey painting this mosque every morning. A mark was placed on the side of the tower to try to establish the relative scale of the vegetation and architecture as translated to a sequence of odd, flat shapes surrounded by radiant blue sky.

Euan Uglow, Nude, Lady C, 1959-60
Uglow explained that every artist has a different way of making an image. In his case it was by working from life; he was most moved by observing a certain light on the contours of a living subject. He translated his sitters from three into two dimensions using detailed measuring, but the result transcends this method, and his work is invariably quiet and yet distinctive and authoritative.
