Description Conservation Exhibitions Provenance Inscription Credit
Description Trudging through the snow on his way to school is a boy with a scarf wrapped over his mouth and his hands shoved into his pockets. He carries a wicker lunch basket and a satchel is strapped over his shoulder. Several decaying posters can be deciphered pasted on the wall in the background, and around the corner a cab disappears into the falling snow.
