DescriptionInterior view of a hut as if one side wall removed to allow a view of the interior: two windows to the right and a desk toward the rear; in the middle distance a cat paws a puddle on the floor; in the foreground an ancient stove with three figures: a man seated wearing a balaclava or hood holds hands and booted feet to the stove;  a man in service uniform stands with his back to the stove with his hands to the stove; a third man in a greatcoat sits with hands on the flue leading from the stove; above them water falls on them from a leak in the ceiling.
