A finely painted scene with exquisite detailing of the figure and an intense layering of colors, there is a mastery of the elements surrounding this young girl that is noteworthy. The well worn stone wall behind her almost disguises the carved sculpture of a Lion from which the well springs. Her peaceful expression and relaxed pose are highlighted by the exquisite detailing of her face and colorful garments. The work is housed in an attractive contemporary giltwood frame.
