The Fleming's list describes this as one of the key works of Scottish artists drawn to the "brutish, semi‐abstract Fauve artists, addicted to primary colour, who believed that ‘honesty’ in art was rooted in their subjective response to external reality." Colourful, bright, even playful, it does seem to reflect the artist's response to the vitality of Parisian life.
