The second series of Goya works explore the Second World War. The idea of the letter is central to the work and the addressee's name is inscribed in the canvas. Atkinson co-founded the pioneering conceptual art group 'Art & Language' at Coventry School of Art in 1968 and is arguably the most significant and influential artist living in Leamington.
