About this object

The print shows a building made of brick with a pointed roof with tiles. The front of the building has a series of five arches, one of which is a doorway. The arches are open and show the inner wall of the building which appears to be constructed of wooden planks. There is a woman in the doorway, with one hand opening a window in the center. To the right, outside the building, are three people, a man and two women who appear to be strolling to the right. To the sides of the building are fences of wooden planks. The area in front is grassy with a walkway. The sky is clear with a few clouds.
