"The subject is less complex both in colour and form thereby creating a really beautiful unity, very powerful use of the green tiles in the foreground, subtle, just perfect. The torn wallpaper is akin to Rembrant's use of paint of old skin. All the elements speak of the light because there is not too much of it. - June Tupicoff"

The beautiful fireplace surround that provides the central motif for the painting was created by Robert Prenzel, arguably Australia's most celebrated wood carver.
