Description du catalogue
A colourful street scene depicting people exiting a bus on the left side of the image and running across an intersection to the right side of the painting. The figures are leaning heavily against the wind; some grasping their hats against their heads. The street is painted in a pale grey-blue and there is a meridian along the middle of the road and various traffic lights at the corners of the intersection. Green grassy hills are in the background and there are thin, diagonal lines painted across the image in a light colour (representing the wind?). There is a pink car in the road on the right side.
