The Backyard at the Rue Archimède, 1938
Two people, possibly playing cards, sit in a walled garden. A ladder leans against one wall, near a fruit tree in bloom, under which are scattered sawhorses and buckets. In the background are clotheslines. The blossoming tree symbolizes hope and renewal – which tragically did not reflect the fate of the artist.
