DetailsThe Two Models, Madonna & Delighted relate back to Picasso’s line drawing of Stravinksy from the 1920’s, which exercised a singular fascination for Frost, this was to be a lifelong preoccupation with the emotional power of the drawn line.
He was already exploring lines, generating and defining shapes: the curve, circles, angles and arabesque. These created rhythm, counterpoint, interruption and repetition – concepts, which he would then spend the next sixty years developing.
