CATALOGUE DESCRIPTION
A winter street scene depicts a family of four standing on a street corner at a bus stop. The road behind is blue, with a puddle of water across it. There is a bus shelter on the opposite side of the street against a large bank of snow with a road leading diagonally up it. Telephone wires are visible over the bank in the background, against a blue sky. Most of the elements of the drawing are outlined in black and filled in with flat blocks of colour. The family in the foreground is dressed in vibrant hues of blue, purple, red, green and yellow.
