Title
Festival of Saint John
Description
Composition in black and white. Dashed parallel sinuous lines and shaded. Group of twenty-one children in various activities, with a fire pit in the center and another being prepared on the right. At the bottom on the left, two figures poorly defined holding a banner fallen back with a flag at the end, where you see drawn a human figure and an animal. The flag in the upper on the left corner of the composition, with the triangular section facing to the right. Circling the fires at the center and on the right: five girls on the left, in profile to the right, with curly hair, and three have tails flitting horses back, holding hoses toward the central campfire, whose water jets intersect. Behind the fire from the front, from the left to the right: a hat boy, with his on the right arm raised, holding a kind of rocket and the on the left hand given to the boy next to him, also wearing a hat and has no facial features defined; down boy with head turned back, arms up and on the left foot with the sole forward - as if dancing frevo; a little behind this, two figures, one facing the other, appearing to be embraced. At the upper right corner, four children, three of the branches of a tree and on the ground, moving attitude. The one on the branch to the left, is lying face down on the left hand holding a hose whose water jet intersects with the others. A girl and a boy preparing to fire that is on the right: it standing, with a log in the hands without defined facial features and hair blowing to the right and he bent forward, arranging the fire logs. On the bottom on the right, three figures: a boy standing in profile to the left, wearing a hat and holding suggesting be an iron to stir the fire. Behind him, two children, one after the other, and the front has both hands on the head. Tip of the tree foliage across the whole width of the support, in the upper range. All composition dotted with more or less intensity, producing effects of chiaroscuro and letting stand the clothes of the figures, lighter and without contour line.
