A painting influenced by popular imagery and modern poster technique, it shows a succession of figures, as in the stills of a ciné-film, and is one of a series of pictures of ‘pin-up’ girls included in the same exhibition. Two others, ‘Where the boys are’ and ‘Three Pictures of you’, were reproduced in the catalogue.
