Study of a nude woman as she bathes in a river, based upon the poem 'The Seasons' by James Thomson. The woman stands up to her thighs in the water with one arm holding onto a branch on the bank to the right. Her head is turned away from the viewer as she looks further down the river. The scene is surrounded by dense trees in shades of brown and green, and the sky above is cloudy and blue.
