Object description

Narrative scene depicting two young lovers in a garden. A young woman, dressed in white with a wide brimmed straw hat carried in one hand, stands in the foreground to left, at the bottom of two stone steps, leaning with one arm against a stone pillar and her back to the rest of the garden. A flowering rose bush grows to the left of the stone pathway before her. Behind her to right, at the top of the steps, sits a young man at a table, one arm leaning on the table top and supporting his head, looking off to the right. Sunlit archway through the trees in the background to the right, through which rest of garden can be glimpsed.
