Remarks on location: 

One of the paintings is located in a corridor on the ground floor, the other in a corridor on the second floor.


The work consists of two paintings with irregular contours, featuring a multi-coloured abstract composition. According to the artist, they evoke the poetry of Émile Nelligan. The titles of each painting are drawn from the verses of two of his poems, Soirs d’automne and Clair de lune intellectuel.
