Simple lines convey intent with clarity

  • Comment

Regarding 'Sketches 'a work of art in their own right'?' (AJ 19.7.01), I can come up with only two excuses for the publication of John K Billington's letter: to elicit opposing views; or because of a lack of alternative correspondence.

Whichever, I am rising to challenge the opinions expressed. Keith Williams' drawings have a simplicity of line which conveys an intent with an absolute clarity and, judging by published photographs, entirely descriptive of the reality.

I applaud the Royal Academy for recognising that but, more so, Keith Williams for having had the confidence to present them.

The latter may well have been inspired by his client.
