This early painting by Geoffrey Mukasa was acquired by the current owner directly from the artist. It is a compelling and unusual composition, palette and painterly touch for Mukasa: with a single male figure rendered in soft, blended brushstrokes, with far less fracturing of the image and viewpoint than many of his works.
