Information about author
This composition consists of two parts. The left part is depicting the images of a girl and a woman wearing dresses and wide-brimmed hats. They are holding purse bags and folded umbrellas in their hands. Below the figures there is an inscription in Polish, which begins with the words "Munia (A. Grottger's sister – an author’s note) and Pani Paulina…". In the right part of the work there is an image of a carriage drawn by one horse. The coach is of a two-seater and closed type. The figure of a horse is depicted in rapid motion. A coachman, who is whipping a horse, is losing his headdress – a black top hat – because of a fast ride. In the background of the carriage there is a two-story house. Below the image there is an inscription in Polish that begins with the words "Jadą!" ("They are riding!").
