Barn and a silo in a landscape. There is a large barn with a pointed roof that takes up almost the entire composition. There is a lower section of the building facing the viewer with a slanted roof. The sides of the lower building have vertical parallel lines indicating slats. The top triangular section has horizontal lines. There is a cylindrical silo on the right side. There are wavy lines in the background and the horizon line is about two thirds from the top.
