Sun in Its Jewel Case
Painting - Oil on Canvas (115.4 x 88.1 cm) 1937

In this smooth and frozen landscape illuminated by an unknown, unreal light coming from the right-back as in the painting « In an Indeterminate Place », time seems to have stopped.

This painting's title, « The Sun in Its Jewel Case » (Le Soleil dans son écrin), doesn't leave up to our expectation.

It is difficult to perceive it in this cold-coloured landscape where the ground merges with the sky under dim light.
