The title refers to Remembrance Day and the work shows blue sky breaking through dark clouds as an allusion to the belief of better times ahead following the Armistice of the First World War. It was produced by painting the clouds onto canvas, cutting them out and glueing them to the blue background, creating the very defined shapes of the clouds.
