This is a classic lithograph by the artist, showing two abstract figures sitting on stripes. This is a well-known motif for Chadwick, and he used the block and triangular headed figures for large sculptures in the same year. In fact, the motif of seated figures was to dominate Chadwick's major bronzes during the 1970s. Here, the seated figures are arranged in formal poses close to one another, suggesting apparent intimacy. The female torso and the ‘pleated' effect of the man's clothing are both clearly defined and each is turned slightly inwards towards the other, suggesting a closeness and intimacy that contracts with the acid green striped bench upon which both figures are seated. The overall effect of the composition suggests a timeless quality so characteristic of Chadwick's work.
