This unusual composition unfortunately was the last of Jacoulet's experiments with placing three figures within an image; avoiding the classic conventions of three-quarter and full-face. The hands play as expressive a role as the faces, and the background is a more skillful variation on the same botanical studies in the late twenties that produced La Gerbe Anthuriums (No. 118). This print was intended for publication nearly a year earlier, but the artist's continued illness was intervening with increasing frequency. - Miles; pg. 124
