The largest in a series of Easter Parade images, this painting conveys the spiritual and the unnatural. Unlike other parades that divide themselves into spectators and participants, this unorganized Easter Sunday event mixes the roles of all involved; spectators become participants and vice-versa. The "mystical airlessness" of the painting is described by Hildreth York: "The edges of one figure become the contours of another as the viewer attempts to penetrate the diaphanous work." 46
