Biosphere
"Dehors" (Outside) by Yves Tanguy. Tanguy's family came from the Finistère area of Brittany, and as a child he spent his summer holidays there. The prehistoric stone monuments left a strong impression on him, and they seem to reappear, as if in dream-like scenes, in his paintings. The artist's early career in the merchant navy may be relevant, as the scene suggests an underwater landscape. The strange symbols are similar to those found in the work of Miró, who often took the birth of the world as a subject for his paintings.
