'The Three Dancers' is a prime example of Luke’s highly stylised and precise technique. The flowing lines of the dancers’ arms, the bending boughs of the bush and the wavy undulations of the landscape, create the rhythm of the dance in a powerfully immediate way. The subtle finish and intense colour derives from the use of tempera, a medium Luke began experimenting with in 1933 and which fascinated him.
