The drawings in this album depart from being just a record of Griggs’s watercolours and are in themselves further expression of the artist’s deep poetic vision. These works certainly compare with the best of his pencil drawings.
Griggs wrote on the 30th of August 1913, ‘It is in work done for his own amusement, or entirely upon his own initiative, that one must look, speaking generally, for an artist’s best expression of his own art’. Michael Gullick says this sentiment ‘may be extended to the watercolour record with its beautiful & interesting drawings, certainly the ‘best expression’ of the artist’.
