Unique Jeffery Matthews Artwork to be Sold for Charity

Jeffery Matthews has created a unique artwork to be sold to raise funds for charity. It includes pieces of the original color swatches produced for Royal Mail. It will be auctioned in London this spring - unless sold privately - to raise funds for research into stem cell treatment for multiple sclerosis, a disease for which there is currently no cure.

The text may not be legible. Under the photo it says:

The color name is written under each swatch. Below the swatches it says:

Off-cuts from original swatches of hand-mixed colours for Jeffery Matthews palette 1988 (last three 1996).

If it is offered by auction, I will post the information here on the blog.
