Two Pictures

In the news is Herbert Badham's Snack Bar (1944), an oil painting that the Australian government has deemed of national importance and has prohibited its new owner from shipping to England. BBC Arts editor Will Gompertz has his own take. Click here.

As I was looking over Snack Bar, something kept niggling at me, like I had seen it before. If not its subject or its narrative then its palette.

That's it! Stan Douglas's Hastings Street, 16 July 1955 (2008)!
