Rosier-feuilles, oil on board on masonite, Number PE.19 In the artist's comprehensive catalogue. Reproduced on page 90 of the catalogue "Refus global (1948)", Canadian Cultural, Centre, Paris, October 1998.

This work is done in a technique that is specific to only a few paintngs done by Barbeau in 1946, among them "Foret Vierge", owned by the National Gallery. Essentially, the masonite is prepared with white paint, oil paint is appllied to the surface and "carving" is done in the paint.
