A woman holding a child sits next to an ageing soldier reclining on a river bank. In the foreground are a group of objects including a Chinese ginger jar, some cut bullrushes, a crumpled white cloth and a leather case with straw spilling out of it. On the left is a river spanned by a three-arch bridge. In the background is a hill topped with a ruin. The sky has been turning yellow and amber by the setting sun.
