Weegee begins experimentations with abstractions and distortions while engaging with disrupting the photo development process in order to create non-figural works. Some scholars have suggested that Weegee was following the avant-garde and art world as he shifted to abstraction. 

This work is a paradigm of Weegee's mid-century abstract work.
