The name of this piece "Cousin du Diable" translates to "Cousin of the Devil" in English. The two blocks of opposing color are unified by the more organic brushstroke in the middle. Physical Description
An oil painting on canvas, this is an abstract painting predominantly using black and white oil paints. The background appears to be white paint with a black box on the upper half. The two colors are connected by a long black brushstroke down the middle. The brushstroke does not touch the edges of the canvas but instead takes up 2/3 of the canvas length-wise and 1/3 width-wise.
