At the edge of a lagoon, a classical-style tomb stands on a high base under a roof with four supporting columns, an imaginary arrangement. The artist highlights the tomb, contrasting it with the darker architecture in the right background. The rosy color layered over the sky suggests sunset. A rickety wooden bridge stretches across the center. The figures scattered about are depicted using spots of color, rather than sharp detail.
