- Title (alt.):
Through a high broad archway with a flat top, steps lead from a canal to a pavement, beyond which is a house-wall with open doorway and three round-arched windows, irregularly placed. Within the enclosure, slender trees are growing. A vine, starting at the right, crosses above the doorway, and on either side there is a mass of foliage. On the lowest step of the archway, a boy is seated, and there are figures in the doorway. The butterfly, shaded is on the lower part of the outer wall, at the left.
