Around 1923, Broders began to incorporate a more distinct third layer of depth in his posters. The foreground, generally depicted in darker hues, "serves to enhance and draw the attention of the viewer to the center," where Broders depicts a town or a village. "The background . . . represents the mountains, which draws upwards the gaze of the viewer" (Perry / Broders p.11). These three elements combine to create a formidable sense of depth. Broders p. 98A, Perry / Broders p. 20, Le Train p. 136.
