Judge's Comments: A masterful vignette painting, vaulted into the realm of greatness by what looks to be absolute control of brushwork, edges and underpainting. The color harmonies make one swoon, and the fact that we are looking through a shop window is telegraphed intelligently and subtly (the vertical band on the extreme left, the lettering overwriting the hanging onions, the vertical color variation on the shopkeeper’s arm and shirt...). I’d like to see this one in real life. Benissimo! - Charlie Hunter
