Elliptical Picture with Glass Globe

inventory number: w0184
Oil paints
58 x 40 cm

This especially tension-filled work shows a yellow ground reminding of a desert over which in the foreground a globe seems to roll. The moving glass globe casts a distinct shadow tinted blue thus indicating incident sun light. Geometric figures in dominating blue float above this place. Grey expanses outlined in red on an ocher background border the view into this world.
