engraving, h 378mm × w 507mm More details

Here gaiety takes centre stage. People eat and drink, make music, court, and sail in a flower bedecked gondola. Working the land, traditionally an important element in depictions of spring, can be seen at the left. The theme has been reduced to a woman picking tulips and a young lad with a shovel on his shoulder.
