In a sequestered dale, encompassed by woody hills, Pan the sylvan deity is playing his pipes under the shade of a tree, accompanied by a Nymph on the tambourine. On a lawn in front of them, three bacchanalian boys and a little satyr are dancing to the time of the music, which the latter particularly seems to enjoy. A river flows through the scene on the hill, from the opposite banks of which, rise hills covered with verdure. [P. 3.]
