Representative of the title, Family In Despair depicts a beautiful almost galaxy like night sky made up of yellow, blue, red, green and purple stripes of colour and a purple white tipped fir tree in the left corner. Despite the beautiful background, the umbrella holding family are separated where the girl stands alone away from a couple, presumably her parents where the dark shadows and birds flying away suggests at hidden troubled emotions. The painting, however, is uplifted by the dramatic shafts of light in the background.
