Oil and pastel on canvas. Last noted to be in a private collection in Switzerland.

The process of simplifying the settings for his figures had already started during the 1960s when the so-called ‘space frames’—linear rectangular constructs—evolved into highly abstracted, stylised interiors. This process continued during the 1970s, until often only allusions to spatial settings remained, such as the railing in Triptych—Studies from the Human Body,1970, which accommodates three nudes in an otherwise undefined space.
