Composition in blue, lilac, yellow, earthy, green, ochre, black, white and red tones. Smooth texture and some marked brushstrokes. Composition representing part of the Brodowski Square, especially the Church of Saint Anthony. The church is on the left of the composition, and we see vents, windows, doors, crosses and belfry all represented; it is painted in light yellow and the roofs are indicated in reddish earthy tone. To the right, a little further back, a house between walls and suggested vegetation. Soil in ochre and mauve tones and stained blue sky in gray and white tones.
