Title: The Shadow

Date: 1896

Inscription: Drawing pencil and watercolour on blue paper, 29.8 x 18.1 cm, signed vertically, lower right, ‘CRM.’

Keywords: trees; symbolism;

Material: Pencil and watercolour

Commentary: This symbolistic watercolour would appear to represent a stylized drawing of a tree and its shadow. Unaccountably the shadow does not quite relate to the object in front and unlike the object, which in its dull tonality almost merges into the background, is of the same brightness and colour as the light blue area at the top which possibly represents the sky.
