The late work of Victor Brauner shows strong primitivist trains. After breaking with French surrealism (1948), the artist is based on the work of Roberto Matta Echaurren and excited as Picasso for the pre-Columbian Mexico. Brauner's interest in the archetypal representations of primitive savages is also reflected in a rain collector activity. The artist had, among others also several sculptures in the area of the South Sea - New Guinea. The 'Little Man' shows almost Cubist station: Brauner constructed geometric shapes symmetrical body with simple lines - ornamental divided - as scarification marks. The figure seems highly segmented linear, a topos, which is quite typical for the draw of Indigenous Peoples. Here one seems to discover parallels with the graphic work of Paul Klee, but the more this stems from the origins of children's drawings.
