An Impressionistic scene of a woman sitting at a dining table on the side porch of the Florence Griswold House c. 1908. The garden and trellis flowers are in full bloom. Glasses, fruit, and flowers are set on the table, which is covered with a white tablecloth. Five Windsor chairs and a wooden box also are seen on the porch. According to the donor, the woman in a large flowered hat, is an unidentified model.
