An intricate pattern with strongly defined cast shadows provides the opportunity to develop a  composition of energetic balance and structure in an arrangement of interlocking colours and  shapes. The dynamic of the grille and the shadows behind contrast with each other in a fixed  shallow space. There are different ways of approaching this painting and it has several  alternative titles, including: - ‘L’Arlesiennes’, ‘Pan’s People’, ‘The Male Gaze’, ‘The Hookers’, ‘The  Stepford Wives’ and ‘The Statue in the Park (2)’; which give different options for relating to the  subject-matter.
