Abstract:
"An elderly man with his hat tied over his ears and his right hand plunged deep in his coat-pocket walks (left to right) in a wintry landscape, across ice or snow. A flying demon, 'Jacky Frost', nips his nose between finger and thumb; he has webbed wings of ice fringed with icicles, and is naked except for a night-cap and skates. He has long pointed ears, grotesque features, and a tail. A dog walks in front of his master, looking up, and raising his paws as if hurt by the icy ground. In the background are tiny skaters."--British Museum online catalogue.
