The children are playing at being soldiers by a brook, with a Roman aqueduct visible in the far distance. Good antique condition: underwent professional conservation 2013 to address and stabilize separation in the sky: label/notation on the back. Reverse black painted and gilded glass sets the panel off handsomely against its antique gilded frame.
