In the foreground is a chest image of a man turned in three quarters. The man dressed in a white camisole, shirt and dark blue scarf. The man has a dark hat on his head, his face is almost completely illuminated by the sun, with only the shadow of the hat falling on his forehead and part of his left cheek. The man is depicted against a spring landscape in the background. A green field extends from the edge of the painting, with rich shades ranging from light to dark green. On either side of the painting in the background are trees, which are just starting to leaf. Behind the figure is a strip of a ploughed field in shades of purple and blue. On the left is a white horse, on the right is a farmhouse with white walls. Above the landscape and the man, stretches the sky with white and purple clouds. The painting is striking in its vividness because it is completely flooded with sunlight, making the colours even brighter.
