A building in ruins with the sun setting in tbe background creating rays of light through the empty window shells. There are some desert foliage to the left hand side where the building meets the ground.
This red-chalk drawing depicts a draped male figure standing with his arms crossed gazing up at a large column with a large urn on top of it amidst classical ruins. Other spoiled sections of columns and an ornate capital are piled next to the central column. The darkly shaded foreground contrasts with the light sky, which takes up the upper three-quarters of the composition.
