Monochrome scene of a shore with low, partially wooded hills in the background. There are two buildings on the shore: to the right, a white rectangular structure with a central dome and an arch under it, and to the left, a stone building with three large consecutive arches, also rectangular in shape. There is a small, single-sailed boat on the water in the distance. The title is given in a handwritten inscription.
