Lafayette Square, St. Louis

Last weeks record breaking mild temperatures were a bonus. In this sketch three friends enjoy the warm weather while sitting on the benches along Park Avenue during the lunch hour. In the background brick buildings with their mansard roofs form a distant curtain. As Robert Henri describes it, "At noonday the landscape is just as fine, just as mysterious and just as significant as it is at twilight."
