Two children sit on the ground next to a young tree that stands supported by a stake. The tree's foliage fills the image at the upper right. A fence in the upper part of the image separates the children from buildings in the distance, seen through the tree's branches. Presumably the children are in a part adjacent to a residential neighborhood.
This tender image of a woman and child sitting near a young tree in an urban park shows how skillfully Whistler could with just a few strokes create a complete environment. The setting is at the Inns of Court, Gray's Inn, in London.
