This image features an etching or engraving with a pastoral scene. It is executed in a classical style and depicts a tranquil natural setting that includes a variety of trees and dense foliage. A body of water, likely a river or lake, can be seen with reflections of the surrounding landscape. On the right, a figure is hanging from a tree branch, seemingly in the act of swinging or climbing. Two more figures are seated on the ground on the left side of the image, with one appearing to be resting or waiting. The attire and hairstyle suggest the setting is from a historical or mythological period. The artwork is detailed, with attention to the textures of the natural environment and nuanced shading that gives depth to the composition. The bottom of the artwork includes the inscription "F. Bartolozzi inv. et sculp." indicating the artist responsible for creating the image.
