Government Bureau ~ A Painting by George Tooker

Government Bureau (1956) by George Tooker

This painting by American George Tooker (1920-2011) captures the impersonal nature of dealing with a government agency. The government is separated from us by a frosty pane of glass. We’re hardly even aware that a human is on the other side. Who hasn’t felt this?
