From the artist's private collection, this charming painting from the very popular Silence series features two soldiers relaxing.
Inspired by the artist’s experience observing the making of the film Always Afternoon, set during World War I, many works from the series feature actors resting off set.
Possessing a meditative quality, still and quiet. This key painting created earlier in the series, captures the solitude and unspoken intimacy between the soldiers.
