A hand-tinted photo-etching presents a scene from the Villa Garzoni, an historical garden based in Italy. Foreground portrays a pound of water, perched on a hill, surrounded with stone walls and an iron gate. In the middle ground, a walking path, surrounded by tall trees, leads further into the garden. In a distance, background presents additional walking paths surrounding a stone monument, set in front of prominent trees. The print presents toned down hues, creating a sort of enchanted, dreamy atmosphere.
