One of the most interesting fields within Vytautas Kasiulis’ work are genre pieces depicting interior scenes that have almost no externally evident activity. This means the painter can concentrate on new aesthetic studies and the search for unexpected colour resolutions on the canvas. The artist thinking is one of the most decorative compositions of Vytautas Kasiulis that was created in the 1950s in Paris. The familiar and frequently variated motif takes on a new resonance as the artist has chosen two contrasting blurs of colour that appear to divide the total composition in half. The poster-like openess of the red and faded green expanses, painted in small, vertical strokes, take on the resonance of stained glass.
