The process of embodying memory in plastic form can be seen in painting The Cattle Dealer. The scene in fact evokes his trips to the cattle market in a horse-drawn cart with his uncle Neuch. But the composition, the scale of the figures and the colour used to construct form give this everyday scene of peasant life a universal significance. It is not in fact the powerful exaltation of the irresistible force of life, always renewing itself, which seems to be evoked here? The clear symbol of the foal seen in the belly of the mare who pulls the cart is explicit in this regard.
