Towards the second half of the 1960s, Caulfield’s attention shifted away from the traditional genre of the still life to a more detailed exploration of architectural elements. This coincided with a change in format and an increase in scale.

Here, Caulfield uses a limited colour range to examine the tension between three-dimensional representation and two-dimensional surface. The highly simplified details of ecclesiastical architecture were suggested by a painting he made of a Paris Church earlier that year.
