      BENNY ANDREWS (1930 - 2006)
      Circle Landscape.

      Oil on linen canvas, 1967. 813x813 mm; 32x32 inches. Signed and dated in oil, lower right recto. Signed, titled, dated and inscribed "32x32" in oil, verso.

      Provenance: private collection, New York.

      Circle Landscape is part of a series of Eden-like garden landscapes painted by Benny Andrews in the mid- to late 1960s. These serene and surrealist scenes appear to offer a respite from the social and political upheaval of the times. They are also in contrast to many other contemporary artistic responses, including the artist's own social-realist works from the same period. Related Benny Andrews paintings are Alice, 1966, the Ogden Museum of Southern Art and Heaven, 1967, the Benny Andrews estate.
