  • Provenance:
    Private UK collection.

    Bakre was first of all a sculptor and his mysterious, empty townscapes often take on a monumental quality, as if the buildings are objects in an enormous still life. Here he adopts an unusual vertical format with a central cluster of buildings (particularly reminiscent of a still life) silhouetted against the sky with the additional framing device of the arch above.
