A square on its diagonal becomes a lozenge shape that creates a more dynamic  composition as it introduces an element of instability. The curves of the metal table top  and legs participate in this instability as they relate to the edges of the canvas. The cast  shadows create echoes and continuations of these curves and arabesques and  the  limited  mostly grey palette of colours ensure that attention is not diverted  from them.  The picture is held in a gently dynamic balance.
