Description In the foreground tall trees rise above a forest path that runs diagonally from left to right centre. A figure, with a sack on right shoulder and walking staff in left hand, proceeds down the path followed at a short distance by two others. A break in the trees allows a view across a lake where swans are swimming to a meadow where cattle graze. The distant prospect is of more woodland, a town and ultimately a hilly horizon.
