Unframed stretched canvas. Image of puffy clouds filling top half of canvas, large gymnasium type building on horizon, green building to right and front of it. In this painting Hisako Hibi depicts Topaz concentration camp during one of its many storms. Buildings stand in the distance on a low horizon line. Above is an abstract geometric shape, perhaps an outline of the mountain range. The sky contains large swelling clouds in grey, white and blue tones. Small shadowy figures walk in the foreground. Hibi seems to be trying to achieve a sense of the gusty wind of Topaz. The inscription on the back of the painting notes that Hibi went outside to paint but that the wind knocked down her easel and canvas.
