Information about author
A genre scene: against the background of a lush garden/park and on the shore of a water body (probably a lake), young people are depicted kissing near the ancient sculpture "Cupid and Psyche" (this serves as an example for the couple). Near the shore (to the right of the man and woman), is a boat with an oar, the bow of which is decorated in the form of a gryphon. In the distance, to the right, in the upper corner of the work, stands a temple with a sculpture with a fire burning on an altar in front of it.
In the bottom left there is a signature: «H.Siemiradzki. MDCCCXCIX Roma»
