This drawing belongs to a series of watercolours and gouaches begun in 1945. At the end of the Second World War, Franciszka Themerson had returned to making paintings. The series depicts townscapes, seashores and refugee figures. The bright colours are a new departure for the artist, but the subject matter continues to allude to the tragedies of the recent past.
