"The child with the hoop, with his fixed gaze, as if posing in front of a photographer's lens, is present on several paintings. This child, a chair transformed into a child, if not the opposite, like the bread carrier, certainly has a secret, but Coutaud does not reveal it to us. It is only much later that we will find the two photographs of him, at the age of three, in which we see him posing in the same attitude, with a hoop and a stick. Jean Binder, Lucien Coutaud.
