Text: Characteristic of Kertész'
work as a "Naturalist-Surrealist," this work
combines prosaic observations of life combined with
surrealistic perspective. The artist said of this photograph:
"The door to [Mondrian's] staircase was always
shut, but as I opened it in my mind's eye the two sights
started to present themselves as two halves of an interesting
image that I thought should be unified."
