Italian by Trevor Bell

The canvas is divided into three main horizontal bands. The upper two being of approximately equal depth, with the largest area at the base. The upper band is painted in sienna, with a circular area of brown/black to the left. The lower area is predominantly black, with strips of brown to either edge, and yellow to the left. The centre area holds a series of vertical fields of red and white, with some yellow and black, heavily impastoed. A vertical strip of sienna, a narrow red strip, and a yellow and umber curve extend below the central band and penetrate into black.
