Sonatina from Pumpkin Vendor. 1989, oil on canvas, 135x135cm. Collection The National Gallery, Jamaica. This is Stafford Schliefer's signature painting. He describes it as follows: "The sonatina, the pumpkin, the vendor... combined to make the poetic personal vision derived from the Jamaican market scene come together in abstracted fantasy."
