In the rare ‘The Conversation’, Charles Blackman places his feminine motif in a garden. Back turned to us, she is engaged in conversation with a young man, plants curling around them like a spell taking effect.

Raised in a house of women, Blackman was always fascinated by the feminine. He felt a kinship with them, envisioning an artistic world perceived and led by girls. Indeed, in ‘The Conversation’ the magic resides in the girl — she is enigmatic, entwined with the garden, the boy a mere mortal.

For collectors of Blackman and rare graphics, ‘The Conversation’ is the ultimate conversation piece.
