In 1969, Wilfred Avery moved to Blackheath, South East London, a change which seemed to bring a renewed energy to his work. He began to work on a series of twenty 'figures', which took him five years to complete. These heavily overworked and highly original paintings were very important to the development of his images in the years that followed.
