Masterfully executed Painting in warm and attracting toned  collours . a typical work of the master from his best creative and typical period.
the painting, which is sensual and erotic through its representation,and the beauty and exoticism of the bodies which  attracts and stirs the viewer,
receives a calm contrast through the view of the wide landscape and the fantastic plants as well as especially through the soft, harmoniously masterfully coordinated color scheme.
