Description

The recto is a pencil drawing depicts a landscape with trees, bushes, a pond, and a cottage in the foreground. The cottage is on the left side of the page and is partially hidden by a grassy hill. The pond is on the right and is surrounded by trees. A sea is in the background. The sea is calm and the sky above is clear with three puffy clouds in the center.
The verso of this drawing has a simple pencil sketch of four women and script written in the top right corner.
