Catalogue Note

This work is a preparatory study for the monumental mural by Martin, commissioned in 1932 to decorate the Escalier d'honneur of the Mairie of the 5th arrondissement in Paris. The mural is made up of five panels, each depicting children, families and couples around the iconic central fountain of the Jardin de Luxembourg. The group represented in the present work can be seen distinctly in the foreground of the second panel from the right.
