A typical Hulings subject, the flower market, gets a lively treatment in this slice of life from the capital of Morelos, Mexico. His daughter Elizabeth Hulings says: "A complicated scene like [this one] would require 4-6 weeks of work in the studio to complete, and that's after making the trip to Mexico, scouring the market for compositional elements, and planning the picture."
The younger woman with long hair wearing grey looks cool and contemporary, and the lady in the blue hat looking through her change purse with her dog waiting patiently on the bench is a more classic touch. The flowers are a vivid color palette, showing the after-the-rain saturation that Hulings often preferred for his flowers.
