Description
Inscriptions/Signature

Representation of a prosperous farm. Dominating the picture plane are a number of large red outbuildings, among them a silo. There is an image of a large white horse painted above the barn door. To the right is a large white farmhouse with green shutters. A white rail fence, taking the shape of a serpentine line, seperates the foreground from the middle ground.
