Object Description

Portrait of a woman wearing a dress typical of the canton of Zurich, Switzerland. She sits on a bench in front of a painted backdrop of a city, surrounded by baskets filled with different kinds of produce. She holds knitting in her lap as she leans over to pick up produce from one of the baskets, and a basket on the bench beside her contains a bottle and yarn.
