A road winds through a lush garden of shrubbery to a house at the horizon line of the piece. The house it two stories tall and is surrounded by trees. The sky is light and cloudy in the background. This lithograph is similar in style to the artist’s paintings in that it is composed of heavy, textured markings to show depth and shadow.
