Information about author
Against the background of a sunny mountain landscape, a scene of people resting in the shade of a large tree. In the centre is a woman seated on a rock from behind; she has dark hair that is braided upwards, in which a red ribbon is visible; she is wearing a yellow tunic, which is brightly sunlit on the back and waist. The woman with her left-hand holds an undressed child with dark, dishevelled hair, her face facing the viewer, but her gaze is directed to the left side of the work. On their right, another woman is depicted in the left profile. She is leaning on her left arm and resting in a half-lying pose under a tree trunk. Her head is slightly bent down and her gaze is directed to the left side of the work. This woman too is dark-haired, with her hair high and a ribbon woven into it; she is wearing a white tunic shirt and her lower body is covered in dark drapery. Between the women, there is a wicker basket of fruit on the grass.
In the bottom right there is a signature: «H.Siemiradzki». On the reverse side: «Dla drogiej kuzyny Ludwiki Radziszewskiej»
