Winter Landscape
Giuseppe De Nittis

Under a leaden sky, a solitary female figure makes her way across a snow-covered garden plot. The garden appears to be walled on three sides, but is open on the fourth to a tall suburban villa. Like the garden, the house seems to be new. The setting may be a suburb of Paris. The sketch seems to have been painted from high up, perhaps from the upper window of a neighbouring house.
