Figari depicts a certain niche of the countryside in this piece. A simple, cube-shaped house with a door and one window is reflected in a small lake. The branches of a few weeping willows fall over the water and the house. A large dark area on the left of this scene seems to intensify the somber atmosphere. The work is painted in a loose style with many daubs of color, a technique that clearly reveals the influence of the painter Pierre Bonnard.
