Jeffry Bligh

This week, we present this poignant work titled ‘Waving Hats and Dancing’. Jeffrey Bligh’s painting is based on Lawrence Ferlinghetti’s poem ‘The World is a Beautiful Place’. It celebrates the joy of being alive while recognising the tragic nature of the human condition. Ferlinghetti died this year two weeks short of this 102nd birthday. Jeffrey Bligh was born in the UK soon after the end of World War ll. His exact place of birth is unclear. Although much of his work has been lost or destroyed, a chain of Bligh’s intermittent artistic activity extends from the 1960s to the present day. #musmex #jefferybligh #thorpdavi
