CATALOGUE DESCRIPTION
A painting of a landscape with a mixture of deciduous trees in the foreground, some tall cypress trees along the middle ground and treed hills in the distance. There are yellow houses with terra cotta roofs scattered in the hills in the middle ground. The roofs of more buildings are painted in the foreground. More vibrant greens are used in the foreground, with muted green tones used to create a sort of hazy effect into the distance.
