Information about author
The image of a rock on which a thin tree grows on the left is depicted against the background of the Italian landscape. A young man with a naked torso stands on top of a rock; he is wearing a hat, and his hands are raised to the face. A spotted black and white dog is shown next to him. In the lower right corner of the painting there is a young girl who is leaning her head on her left hand while her elbow is placed on a large stone. She is dressed in a red tunic and a white blouse. To the left of the rock there is a road behind which there are white brick houses; the mountains are visible in the distance on the horizon.
At the bottom right there is an author's inscription "J. Styka/Roma 882".
