Description

Spot the difference: this painting is almost a twin to Still life with tomatoes and onions, the only difference being the painted shutters in this work vis-a-vis the open window, seascape and palm trees in the background of the other.

The artist painted this one in the 1980s at a friend’s house in Chefchaouen, south of Tangiers.  The other painting with the open window was done later, and the seascape is in fact completely imaginary: Chefchaouen is an inland town close to the Rif mountains.
