Above the Roofs, 1940

In this view of rooftops and chimneys, a clothesline is visible, hung with two black gloves. In the background, the branches of treetops can be seen. This is the view that Nussbaum saw from his studio on Rue Archimède in Brussels. The inability to move freely led Nussbaum to paint a number of views from his studio while in hiding, perhaps as way of compensating for his lack of freedom.
