Even when he was on vacation, the painter remained a flaneur who recorded chance observations and meetings. Here he is approached by a black-clad cleaning woman who is carrying a basket with difficulty. She is moving away from the sea, which can be made out in the distance. The realistic portrayal of sunlight was indebted to the studies en plein air that Gustave Caillebotte had executed alongside Pierre-Auguste Renoir during the previous summer.
