"WE have by now a pretty clear idea of the prevailing tastes of the generation of painters who have come of age since the war. They are fond of painting big pictures--often bigger than seems necessary--as if to do so were a matter of principle. They like laying it on thick when it comes to surface-texture, as if they wanted to make painting a form of lowrelief, often using the palette-knife to build up a heavy crust of paint, variations in the thickness of which take the place of variations of tone and colour, or dribbling paint straight from the tube on to the canvas. And beyond these characteristics common to so many young painters both abstract and realistic, the latter have another to themselves. It resides in their choice of subject-matter when they are painting still lifes and interiors." - David Sylvster
