The scene in this painting takes place against a landscape background.

A groom leads a horse away from the centre of the painting on the left-hand side of the picture. On the right-hand side of the painting, a kneeling man grasps the knees of a woman, who points up towards the sky. This painting was part of a collection of 117 works belonging to the industrialist and engineer F.D. Lycett Green and bequeathed to York through the Art Fund, in 1955, in recognition of the remarkable efforts made after the Second World War by its curator to transform it into a gallery of international importance.
