Notes:
Appears in exhibition catalog as entry no. 32
In a rural spot, a little party of country swains and maidens are dancing and lovemaking; two lovers have retired to a green bank for a confidential chat, thereby attracting the attention of their companions, and cruelly exciting the curiosity, and perhaps the jealousy of a pretty girl, who is dancing without a partner; not an uncommon accident on such occasions. The landscape is light and sketchy, giving a retiring background to the figures. [P. 11.]
