The painting is a dramatic scene with a rich narrative quality, painted by Mead Schaeffer, titled “Closed! Frieder, do you realize what that means…," circa 1932. The image showcases two central characters, a man and a woman, apparently locked out of a building marked by the prominent "Closed" sign. The man, to the left, is dressed formally in a tuxedo, holding a top hat and cane, conveying a sense of disappointment or inconvenience. The woman, adorned with a glamorous fur wrap, looks directly at the viewer, her expression one of concern or dismay. The presence of a uniformed officer below, cast in shadow, adds to the tension, suggesting they may be dealing with an authority figure. The blue-hued palette and night time setting underscore a mood of tension and uncertainty.
