Description
Inscriptions/Signature

Three deer in the foreground of a dark, wooded landscape. Two deer on the left side of the composition graze in profile while the third, alert, looks out at the viewer. A spray of fern leaves grows in the lower right portion of the print. The upright deer’s head is in front of a pine tree and round projections of its needles fill the upper left corner.
