Le Jardin, etude is a wonderful insight into the working methods of one of the key members of the Cubist (Section d’Or) movement. The lines here are confidently drawn to form a composition that fills the page with a strategically ordered pattern. De la Fresnaye’s clever manipulation of abstraction results in the viewer knowing just enough, through hints of roof top, tree and the figure’s legs, without fully ‘descending’ into naturalism. Here the artist lets the viewer work to form his or her perfect view of the garden through the slightest depictions of its makeup.
