Huber's mastery is evident throughout this early drawing, from the meandering, apparently casual lines describing the contours of the earth to the careful, hooked strokes capturing the lushness of summer foliage. Despite the appearance of spontaneity and realism, the artist carefully composed the scene. The subject has not been specifically identified.
