Note:

In the early 1950s Kaiser’s paintings had brisk and active surfaces which later became at once smoother and grittier - probably inspired by the monumental stillness and tactile sensibility of Antoni Tapiès.
His titles were post facto: he painted without a specific aim and when the work was finished he would title them all according to what thoughts or memories came to mind.
