He painted The Garden of France in Huismes (Touraine), between the rivers Loire and Indre, where he had bought a house.... The artist shows his chosen home in bird’s-eye view, as it were on a map. He has even noted down the names of the rivers and their direction of flow, although in reality they do not flow counter to each other. Melding with this almost factual, reduced representation of the landscape is a naked female body... http://www.fondationbeyeler.ch/en/exhibitions/max-ernst/works
