This work sits comfortably in its square format with not a trace of tilt or skew, a thing of right angles, muted colours and beauty. It was probably Shakespeare who wrote that "comparisons are odorous", but that was already proverbial wisdom in his time. "Squares? I see no squares in my pictures." was said to be Piet Mondrian's reply when asked by a critic why he always painted squares. He never really did, and there are no squares in this picture either, but it is with Mondrian's more austere late work that this piece bears comparison.

The only other abstracts that might conceivably match it might be found in the better works of the Constructivist school but I would not spend too long searching. This work gains in value by being what it is, a well chosen 'sample' of architectural reality so abstracted from its context and location, so lacking in scale, that it could be almost anything. One is also struck by the extreme flatness and compression of space right down to the two dimension plane. The only faults are in the finish of the building itself, which only adds to the charm of the work, grounding it in the reality it came from.
What do you think?

A great picture, strong colours and shapes.

At first, it has a very abstract feeling, but then one notices little revealing irregularities. So, finally, one realizes what is really shown in the picture.

I like it a lot :) (Smile)

Glad you do!
Indeed, the rotation makes some disorientation, but
I guess you can get to it with some time ;)

I am strolling around!
Most of the time in Berlin - but I like to travel in germany.
I don´t know, I guess in the meantime I have developed a
certain "view" on the urban environment, that facilitates
recognizing such structures.
But sometimes I feel a bit enclosed, I want to proceed in
new directions.

Thank you.
