In this stylish cubist still life, Hollings works to great effect with a limited choice of colours. Bread, fruit and jug are placed upon a tilted tabletop reminiscent of Cezanne, with Hollings opting for even more stylised forms united upon a field of red cloth. With the background landscape of green, black and gold, this is a clever and appealing work by one of New Zealand's best known artists.
