Douglass Hall, Michael Tucker et, al., 'Alan Davie,' Lund Humphries, London, 1992, cat.no.182, p.171
From 1953 to 1956 Davie taught in London at the Central School of Arts and Crafts, where be became interested in African and Pacific art. As early as 1958 Davie emphasized the importance in his work of intuition, as expressed in the form of enigmatic signs. During the 1960's he represented such images with increasing clarity at the expense of gestural handling. In 1971, he mad ehis first visit to the island of St. Lucia, where he began to spend half of each year and which brought Caribbean influences to bear on his suggestive imagery.
In 1948 he held solo exhibitions in Florence and Venice and had work purchased by Penny Guggenheim. In 1950 he had his first solo exhibition at Gimpel Fils Gallery in London where he exhibited frequently throughout his career, including three further exhibitions in the 1950s and a solo show in 1961. In 1957 he showed work at the Museum of Modern Art in Paris and at the Guggenheim Museum in New York. In 1958 he was part of the Critics Choice Exhibition selected by David Sylvester and also that year he had his work included in the Venice Beinnale. In 1993 Davie was given a major retrospective at the Barbican Gallery in London
