In the 1950s, a gestural and expressive form of abstract painting created an international furore. Bogart’s very physical form of painting was very much in the same vein. He added cement or powdered chalk to his paint and applied this mixture so thickly to the canvas that the result resembled a weathered wall. From the 1960s, his compositions became starker with only a single colour or two contrasting colours, creating works that are not dissimilar to road signs.
