1754 Allegories of Spring - In a Garden
1754 Spring from The Four Seasons published by Thomas Major London. People appear to work in the walled sunken garden behind the group. A man hands a flower to a young woman sitting on a terrace with her attendant standing behind them. A boy at right has a parrot perched on his hand. They are in a garden with a statue of a Venus & an arch at left, through which a couple can be seen in an embrace. Plants in pots dot the area around the group.
