This print evokes the feelings associated with with the sunset in its yellow background and the shadows that come in the black trailing splotches. The sun in the upper right-hand corner of the piece is surrounded by a scarlet ring to emphasize its glow and warmth. Beneath it is evidence of buildings that form a cityscape behind what appears to be a figure turned up at the sun. Its head, rendered as a crescent with an eye, reflects a similar form on the other side of the composition that is a black crescent surrounding a circular eye shape within it.
