Portrait of a woman wearing a dress typical of the canton of Lucerne, Switzerland. She stands beneath an arbor covered with vines, and holds the handle of a pickaxe that rests on the ground. A rake and a watering can sit on the ground on the right side. The painted backdrop behind her features the rooftops of a city, including a church with two tall towers, and a stone perimeter wall.
