Gusu Beauties Print 6

A woman holds a small child on her arm, two bigger boys are standing at her right. They are dressed in sable hats and long robes, indicating winter, which is also confirmed by the snow and ice on the ground outside.

The boy holding the woman’s hand carries an incense burner or a hand warmer in a red kerchief. The boy to the far left presents a leaf-less twig.

Through a drapery one sees the garden with balustrades and other buildings. The trees are bare and it is a very chilly atmosphere in the print.
