Quay with Sand Barges (Boats with men unloading sand)

"At the moment I’m working on a study like this: boats seen from a quay, from above; the two boats are a purplish pink, the water is very green, no sky, a tri-colour flag on the mast. A workman with a wheelbarrow is unloading sand. I have a drawing of it too." To Theo. Arles, on or about Monday, 13 August 1888.
