After Muybridge...(1965)*

From Francis Bacon: The Logic of Senesation: "Beckett & Bacon have never been so close, & this daily round is the kind of stroll typical of Beckett's characters: they too trundle about fitfully without ever leaving their circle or parallelepiped. It is the stroll of the paralytic child & its mother clinging to the edge of the balustrade in a curious handicapped race" (Deleuze 36). Click image for bigness.

*Or, Woman emptying a bowl of water and paralytic child on all fours.
