Semi-abstract gouache painting on paper contains a composition with four men wearing overalls and work clothing set against a multi-color abstract background. The men are loosely painted with active poses. The faces of two additional workers appear in the background at upper left and top center. A jagged red border outlined in black with multicolor shading spans the lower edge of the image.
