As it is also the case with this atmospheric work in a small format, which shows the well-known Place de la Madeleine from two different perspectives. The deliberately chosen seasonal atmosphere - autumnal wet street or the winter sky above the city - intensify the character of a snapshot, which the various faces of the metropolis have in common.
