Peter Brook (1927-2009):
Waiting for the Shop to Open, late 1970's
Framed (ref: 3826)
Signed and titled
Oil on canvas, 20 x 24 in. (50.8 x 61 cm.)
Provenance: from the artist's own collection.
This is a classic Brook image - a witty and poignant subject, which presented itself by chance, executed with technical brilliance and innovation. The painting is steeped in atmosphere - deeply evocative of time and place, whilst at the same time never at risk of appearing dated.
