New England Tragedy (1934) by Umberto Romano



c) Comparable part of New England Tragedy (1934) by Umberto Romano reversed next to Sylvain Despretz's illustration

Taking a good look at the illustration of the motorised Wheelchair for the character Vriess, I compared it to my lists of paintings and suddenly realised that it connected up with this one and I can see how it worked once  Romano's piece was reversed.







d)  The area that becomes the chair




e) The side of the building with the long pole becomes the sloping back of the chair



f)  The tombstones transformed into foot rests





g) The tombstone and the arm of the man playing the banjo becom the rectangular cannisters





h) Distant tall structure becomes the top of the hand arm rest with the joystick





i) The woman lying across the ground becomes the long mudguard for the wheels, while perhaps the tombstones become the wheels
