From his trip to Barcelona in 1937, Goerg will keep striking images that will give a more serious tone to his work of that time. Regarding the theme of the Spanish Civil War, the first degree will take precedence over irony in uprooting, wandering, helplessness, loneliness and hunger. The irony does not suit the expression of a reality of such tangible misfortune. In this representation of two girls, two children finding solace in the sharing of an orange, only tenderness and compassion find their place. Here, Goerg abandons the intuition for the narration, exchanging the habit of clear-sighted and lucid commentator for that of modest witness, vector of a shocking emotional intensity
