Image description for Paul and Virginia in the Forest

[the image described here]

Paul is shown here as a finely dressed young man with a cravat, permed dark hair, a button-up shirt and french pantaloons or orange striped trousers rolled up at the ankles. He is barefoot. He shades his eyes with one hand, as if peering into the distance; his other arm is around a kneeling young woman who rests against his right leg. She has her hands clapsed as if praying, and wears a white chemise or thin shirt and a plain striped grey skirt; she appears to have wrapped strips of cloth over her feet.

In the distance is a dark-skinned man running towards the couple with outstretched arms.

The scene takes place in a tropical forest.
