- 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.
