Output from a private collection, this painting was on loan to the Musée du Québec in 1993 to be part of a retrospective of the painter.

This type of urban scene view of the interior of a building is relatively uncommon in the work of Hebert. We can identify the three characters in the foreground. On the right is Henri Hébert. The young woman in the center is Béatrice Provencher and on the left, it would be the organist Benoît Poirier. In the same way that he painted his portraits around 1923, the painter uses urban scenes as a witness, even though the two children seem to be looking towards the window. The artwork situates the characters in a universe that is familiar to them without actively integrating them into it.
