This timeless drawing, which exudes a sense of detachment, was probably made by Le-Tan in the 2000s. In the background is the quintessential Parisian monument, the Eiffel Tower, which was often depicted by Le-Tan. The layout and the dimensions suggest that it was intended as a cover design.

Ce dessin intemporel, émanant un sentiment de détachement, a probablement été exécuté par Le-Tan dans les années 2000. La Tour Eiffel en arrière-plan, monument typiquement parisien, a souvent été représenté par Le-Tan. La mise en page et les proportions suggèrent qu’il soit un projet de couverture.
