Description
This oil painting depicts a landscape scene. Numerous trees, including palm trees, frame the image on the left and right. The center of the image is an open clearing with a small stream running through a meadow covered with greenery and flowers. Further back into the painting the clearing opens up into a wide meadow. There are two small nude human figures on the right side of the meadow. Beyond the meadow is a lake fed by a waterfall. In the background is a single conical mountain.
