Peter Warlock painting – The Vanishing Trick

Peter Warlock called this painting ‘The Vanishing Trick’. It came to the Davenport Collection when we purchased it from Richard Stupple in 1996. The bottom right hand corner says ‘Peter Warlock – 78’. It is very likely that Peter was influenced by ‘Man with a Newspaper’ by René Magritte, as in the postcard reproduction, illustrated here.
