This is one of two very similar compositions which were among the artist's last works in oil. He has written: 'This painting has no calculated composition and is a study in texture and reductionism, the coloured areas are supposed to suggest that the canvas is bound by bands - as if they continued round the back like a bandage round a limb.' After this, Hill concentrated for a time on relief and sculpture.
