This image is one of the first Kertész took when he moved to Paris and is still reminiscent of his days in Hungary. It is part of a small group which relates to the avant-garde puppeteers Geza Blattner and his assistant Sandor Toth and their experimental marionette theater "Arc-en-Ciel" (Rainbow) in Montparnasse. It shows the two marionettists with Rosza Kertész and Blattner's sister. Kertész and his wife frequented the theater and were friends with the two puppeteers.
