Description  
Signac in his early career, often worked in the suburbs of Paris. He chose unusual and indeed sometimes ugly industrial subjects such as this railway junction which is in Asnieres which lies to the North-West of Paris. He painted the railway yard with broad brush-strokes in fairly muted colours and the strong verticals of the trees and telegraph poles are a striking feature of the work. Signac created a vista by positioning a dark form in the foreground and thus introduced greater depth in the painting and the viewer wonders about the loneliness of the figure in the hut.
