Painted with speed, freedom and accuracy, this watercolour is remarkable for its apparent naturalism – its linear perspective, the brilliant rendition of the stuccoed walls and the architectural detailing of the campanile, windows and Juliette balconies all painted in an Impressionist manner. There are accents of light and shadow on the street. With the figures engaged in conversation the artist takes every life and elevates it into an art form.
