A painting representing a figure group of four nude men against a landscape of abstract forms resembling areas of sea and rock. One man stands apart to the left with hands behind his back, the other three to the right stand in varied positions; one crouching down, one bending over, and one standing with his hand raised to his head. The figures are reminiscent of Cubist work, in that the figures are shown as having abstracted bodily forms in a primitivising setting.
