Description:
In this poster by the celebrated French symbolist painter Lucien Levy-Dhurmer, a retired soldier under a blossoming tree supports himself with a walking stick. An impressionistic sea separates the soldier from the city in the background. Contrasting the soldier's feelings of isolation and despair with the beauty of the landscape, the painting is designed to provoke an empathic response from the viewer.
