The Green Anne Frank (1980)

oils on canvas : 82 x 102 cm

The centre rectangle is coloured light to convey the 'normality' of outward appearance. It is surrounded by darker shades conveying the sense of being 'hemmed in'. As in Painting 1, shadows extend across the grass auguring impending catastrophe. Thus, the garden wall extends into a concentration camp wall. Instead of pictures of film stars and photographs placed upon the wall of her bedroom, we view images from concentration camp life. The painting is viewed through a window. Again we see the stairs leading to Anne Frank's room with its own window looking out upon 'normality'.
