The scene is English pastoral with a milkmaid milking a cow while sheep lay down around her and a man standing to one side takes a drink. She is by a lake and weir with a rocky outcrop to her left, in the distance is another cow and more sheep while further up river is a fisherman fishing with rod and line with a house on the opposite bank, with exceptional quality painting of incredible detail.
