Description
This landscape painting depicts a country vista with small houses on the horizon. The foreground shows an open meadow with grass and a few tall, scattered trees that become two thick groves, one on the right and a smaller one on the left. A break in the trees reveals a hill on the horizon with red-roofed houses scattered across it. Light is slanting across the hilltop, and the sky is blue with wisps of white clouds.
