"These three artists have not been chosen because they have some common aim, outlook or style or because they reveal some underlying characteristic of British painting. Indeed they vividly reveal the wide stylistic diversity of contemporary art. In time they cover half a century. The impressionist tradition, the influence of the School of Paris, the fantasy and violence of surrealist imagery, and the more rigid and geometric aspects of non-figurative art may well be traced here in the work of these three artists whose achievements are widely recognised outside this country."
