Handwritten text by J. Le Gac in the upper left corner of the picture:
... Dans les épisodes précédents le peintre L... désouevré, avait découvert une boîte de pastel oubliée dans un tiroir. IL se mettait à copier les illustrations de ses livres d'enfant qui étaient à l'origine de sa vocation d'artiste.
Mettant à profit un lumbago qui lui interdit les amples mouvements que nécessitent les grandes oeuvres, s'approprie définitivement pastels et crayons de couleurs provenant de la chambre des enfants, et commence, dit-il, les dessins d'un génie en herbe.
Dans celui-ci des misérables se lirent à une louche besogne, près d'un garage sur les hauteurs de Belleville!
