"A loutish yokel (l.), holding a pitchfork, grins avidly at a hideous and elderly country woman who crouches behind a stile (r.), her features twisted in a sly grimace. In the background (l.) men reap a corn-field, and corn-stooks cover a more distant hill. Lavinia is framed in foliage, with autumn leaves and a withered tree."--British Museum online catalogue.
