Mini Master Registry
Lucas was very critical of his own work - over the years, he often took back unsold works which he had previously exhibited at the gallery as he was no longer satisfied with them.
Sometimes he would rework them, often dramatically, and then later they would come back onto the gallery scene with the same name - as various stages - or a new name, and they would be given a new registry number reflecting the year completed.
Here follow a few images of works that no longer exist, that were withdrawn, incompletely reworked or even destroyed by the artist
Originally recorded as LS7107 "Old age", returned to artist, back on gallery scene as LS7302 "Makamela" - recorded in SITHOLE book, p. 226 - withdrawn or destroyed in 1975
LS7404 "Peacemaker's wife II." - recorded in SITHOLE book, p. 227 - withdrawn or destroyed in 1978
LS7405 "Let your love into my heart" - recorded in SITHOLE book, p. 227 - withdrawn or destroyed in 1978
LS7406 "Perseverance" - recorded as LS7323; see SITHOLE book, p. 228 - withdrawn or destroyed in 1978
LS7407 "Forgive me" - recorded in SITHOLE book, p. 228 - withdrawn or destroyed in 1978
The above are only a very few of the documented cases.
