Work of remembrance tone expressed in the feminine dress and the dazzling color of the scene. On the left there are some typical musicians in movement along with the group of dancers whose main axis is an idyllic couple whose proportions seem to touch the roof of the arbor. This swing of the dancers allows you to appreciate a landscape with mountains, roads, houses, palm trees and shrubs. The work offers the proportional deformations that characterize the artist's style as well as the anecdotal and documentary interpretation.
