Description du catalogue
A colourful sketch depicts a coastal scene with various figures standing and sitting on a hill in the foreground on the right. The figures are colourfully dressed in purple, pink, green and blue swimsuits and dresses. At the base of the hill, a road curves around on the left, with three figures riding two motorcycles. Yellow crescents of light are cast into the road from the headlamps of the motorcycles. In the background, purple and blue beach huts are positioned along a shore, with a large body of water beyond. A small motorboat is making its way toward the shore. There is a low, blue strip of land in the distance, below a blue and pink sky. A line of four birds is flying from left to right into the image.
