Man Walking in the Rain, 1948
Homme qui marche sous la pluie

The fragility of the striding man figure stretching upwards in the vertical plane is accentuated by the contrast with the heavy and solid horizontal base. At the same time, the base gives the figure a section of path to walk along, much of which it has already travelled.
