Around Christmas I went back to Barcelona from Salou. Because it was too cold in the house, no heating. When standing in the train, I saw a very beautiful girl and I made, from a distance, a picture of her. Because of bad lightning and a moving train the picture was blurred. But as an impression good enough. The next day I returned to Salou to make this painting. A few days later I went back to The Netherlands. “Xica en el tren” means “Girl in the train”.
