Loupot's image for safety glass and Cassandre's Triplex (see PAI-LXXV, 272) were executed the same year—shortly after the beginning of their association in Alliance Graphique. Both use a plane of glass, but in characteristically different ways. Cassandre's image, rendered in sober black and brown, focuses on the threat to the driver's eyes. Loupot's design has nothing of this stark quality. Indeed, the glass here shatters, but the shower of the fragments resembles a joyous snowfall; the person behind it comes through smiling, and the colors offer a sense of safety and well-being. It's not precisely what you'd expect, but it is a most effective—and entertaining—vision of precisely what non-cutting broken glass might look like.
