This painting of a sophisticated urban café bar is presented as a kind of stage set. The different elements – pavements, figures, umbrellas, elegant facades, form bands across the picture surface which are emphasised by tonal contrast. The colours are influenced by the warmth of Sicilian buildings and marble paving stones. Touches of colour in the table cloths and clothes of the figures enliven the largely monochromatic image.
The picture is painted in acrylic on canvas, protected by a matt varnish and framed in a white painted wooden frame.
