A woman with a basket and cane makes her way down a snow-packed path. The landscape is filled with barren trees, silhouetted against a pastel sky. Pink, blue, mauve, and gold –the colors of a winter’s twilight– are reflected on the snow-covered ground.

Landscapes, cityscapes, and farmland scenes were popular themes for FAP artists who typically avoided controversial subjects.
