Related to ‘Roquebrune’ 1979, in which a painting on canvas and a photograph on canvas are put together in the same way, juxtaposing the ‘reality’ of photography and the ‘art’ of Van Elk's painted equivalent as two depictive methods. The photograph in both works is of rocks at Roquebrune in the South of France.
