The present figure epitomises Carlier's virtuoso treatment of figures in motion. The figure stands bracing herself against the violent wind, her body taut as she withstands the impact. The drama echoes that of the Gilliat, in which the male figure's form is strained, ready for movement. For Carlier's dynamic treatment of the female form, compare also his Panyre aux Talons d'Or and Baigneuse Debout.
