"Le Coup de Vent" (Biedermeier Fashion. UMBRELLA)
(The Gust of Wind)
A ghastly happening - when a stormy gust hits the promenading couple, turning the protective umbrella inside out, sending the man's hat flying away .
The lady, in Biedermeier attire is hanging onto the arm of her companion and her own hat, which is in danger of falling victim to this tempest.

Antoine Charles Horace Vernet, better known as Carle Vernet; Biedermeier themes reinforced feelings of security, Gemütlichkeit, traditional pieties, and simplicity, eschewing political and social commentary during the epoch.
