Five women and a girl watch as three others roll a large snowball before a grey background with whirling snowflakes. This print is by the same artist as the quintych that Breitner owned (adjacent). Breitner was fascinated by such scenes; he loved depicting the city in the snow. Moreover, the print presents a variety of poses of women in kimonos.
