(illustrated); 2) 'Landscape study of Cairns', 1944. 3) Mountain and Orange Sky dated 1944. These 3 drawings are part of a collection of 66 works bequeathed to Pallant House by Charles Kearley. Kearley was a builder and property developer. Kearley built a small block of flats in Kensington in the later 1930s which Maxwell Fry had designed, and the architect persuaded him to add a penthouse for himself at the top. Kearley found the flat very bare so started to furnish it with works by Paul Nash, John Piper and others. His enthusiasm for contemporary art and design grew from then on.
