These include his own family members – his first wife Marion, second wife Caryl and his two children. Topolski was painting until a few days before his death on 24 August 1989.

The diary scroll will be mounted in the Studio, Arch 158 when sufficient funds have been raised. It is open ended and, in Topolski’s own words, ‘… to be cut short only by nature’s will’.
