VCC 1537 (NGC 4528).This galaxy is in the same class as VCC 1883 and VCC 355
(and perhaps VCC 784 and VCC 778) but shows even more extreme properties. The
bar is very prominent and is misaligned relative to the major axis of the main
body of the galaxy by about of 60^deg^, with the bar almost aligned in the
east-west direction. Ellipticity, position angle, and A4 and B4 coefficients
change abruptly where the bar sets in. The surface brightness in the main body
of the galaxy changes abruptly at the radius corresponding to the edge of the
bar; being fainter within the region swept by the bar than outside. There is no
clear evidence for a nucleus, although the surface brightness profile is quite
