Description
Unframed stretched canvas. Image of a man and child, three woman and another child by a tree in the snow. There are barracks and smoke and mountains in the background.
This is another of Hisako Hibi's winter landscapes in which she depicts an open space inhabited by a few figures, bordered by rows of barracks in the background. The snow-covered mountain peak rises quite dramatically behind the barracks. Three girls appear at the left, while a man grasping the hand of a small child walks ahead of them. Another solitary figure stands in the distance. Perhaps they are all walking to or from the camp school, a system that employed both internees as well as teachers and administrators from the outside.
