The exhibition at the Museum of Private Collections in Odessa, Ukraine
included the paintings which I did in Biscuit Mile and I want to discribe some of them.
Portraits Gladys and Angel.
Those two models, we found with my daughter Rada on Green Market Square. In those first years of our visits to Cape Town it was quite different evrywhere, especially at the Green Market. There came people from all over the continent and some time they looked wild, they speak only in their own language. I really liked it. Those people were very natural and not accustomed to civilization.
History tells us that before it was the mapket where they sell the slaves, then it turned into a vegetable market.
Today there are a lot of tourists, they buy traditional clothing, jewelry and souvenirs.
Over time, the face of the market is slightly different - it began to dominate the African curios - sounds exciting music masters weave braids to each other and here are the most colorful and eccentric characters of the city.
Greenmarket Square is an unbeatable value.There are many restaurants and cafes that provide opportunities for people to read and enjoy the local cuisine, several coffee shops, restaurants and hotels that are convenient for customers who need to relax after shopping.
The area was built in 1696, when the first burgher watch house was built here, known as the "Watch Square". All the house was rebuilt in the old town house in 1761, which functioned as a town hall for some time. Today it houses a collection of paintings Michaelis. Many of the other houses in the area date back to the 1860s and the area declared a national monument in 1961.
