18C Allegories of Spring - Love & Bird Nests
1785 Probably Britain. Here a young man is handing a birds' nest to a young woman. He has one hand on her shoulder as she accepts the nest. She is collecting spring flowers in her apron. The couple is passing by another woman kneeling beside a basket of flowers and hold up a garland for the couple to see. Men are sowing grain in fields in the background to left.
