The composer is depicted seated at a table laden with musical manuscripts, pen in hand,
Inscribed in black ink "to Peggy with my best wishes Milhaud 1955."
1955 saw Milhaud finishing his Deuxième concerto and writing Protée, Pensée amicale, the 6th and 7th symphonies, the Service pour la veille du Sabbat, the Cinquième concerto, Deux poèmes [de Vilmorin], the Petite suite, and Juanita.
"[He] was associated with the avant garde of the 1920s, whose abundant production reflects all musical genres. A pioneer in the use of percussion, polytonality, jazz and aleatory techniques, his music allies lyricism with often complex harmonies. Though his sources of inspiration were many and varied, his music has compelling stylistic unity." Jeremy Drake in Grove Music Online.
