In 1950 Sadanand Bakre moved to England along with fellow artist, Laxman Pai. London offered a range of new possibilities for him and the ready availability of painting material meant he could paint more frequently. The 1960s are often considered the most important period for his oeuvre because of his use of bold geometric lines and angular forms. Through the genre of landscape, Jerusalem captures Bakre's affinity for cubist flattened forms, playfully utilizing painted concentric frames, the center of which is inhabited by an architectonic cityscape. The angular cornices are juxtaposed against rounded arabesque towers in this abstracted landscape bathed in gold. This painting underlines Bakre's ability as a colorist, subtly combining golds and blues to create an almost orientalized atmosphere.
