Caulfield was a reticent man who was diffident about being associated with any particular art movement. In much of his early work he adopted the anonymous technique of the sign painter, dispensing with visible brushwork and distracting detail and simplifying the representation of objects to a basic black outline in order to present ordinary images as emblems of a mysterious reality. The scale of Two Whiting, and the contrast between colour and the sea of white in which the still life objects float, creates a similar affect. (Andy and Friends, 1999)
