Description:

Signed, dated and inscribed: "J. Mechau fec Romae 1792 | Entrata nel bosco di Marine". Marino is in the Albanian Mountains. Its extensive forests are repeatedly praised by travellers of the 18th and 19th centuries. At the centre of the depiction is a withered oak tree, the trunk of which apparently bears a votive image kissing a young woman. In Romanticism, of which Mechau was one of the pioneers, the lonely tree became a central motif..
