Coney Island

A cool-toned oil painting of a merry-go-round. Several figures ride horses on the merry-go-round, and the central figure, a black-skinned youth, rides a lion. In the background on the right, a group of people stand in front of a structure that has a sign with the words “Fire Eater” on its roof. The colors blur together, creating a soft and atmospheric scene.
