Innholdsanalyse

A diagonal line can be observed going from the top left corner, across the figure's shoulder bone and finishing at the bottom right, almost separating the artwork in two.

The top part, is made of straight lines and architectural shapes, that could've been inspired by Le Corbusier, a Swiss avant-garde architect, that Charlotte Wankel met in Paris.[2] Aside from Le Corbusier's influence, she could have also been inspired by the street of Paris, which are usually made of rectangular gray buildings.

The bottom part is made of rounder shapes, reminding us of nature. The opposition in the painting could be a way for Charlotte Wankel to compare nature to the city, as she was living in a time where cities were becoming industrialized extremely fast. [3]

It can also be noticed that the standing figure is looking towards the city-like part of the artwork and seems to be hiding while the head at the bottom is looking towards the nature-like part. The man seems hesitant and observant while the bottom figure seems sure of themselves. A parallel can be drawn with Charlotte Wankel's purism and how nature can be seen aw simple and easy while cities are seen in constant change and more intricate.
