The painting was painted at the beginning of the 20th century, after the October Revolution. In the foreground, two young girls are sitting on the lawn near the shore of a forest river. The young women depicted in the picture are dressed in dresses of the pre-revolutionary era. On their faces appeasement, calm, slight sadness. Girls enjoy the beautiful summer weather. On the legs of the young lady are thick white stockings and leather shoes. Ladies hold hats in their hands. The expression on the faces of young maidens is reserved.

At the feet of the girls sits a small doggie. It is not clear whether he came with them or whether they met him in the forest. The dog is sitting motionless. Next to the girl with blond hair is a summer umbrella that protected her and her friend from the sun. Now they are sitting under the sprawling branches of a large tree, which cast a cool shadow on the girls.

In the background is a large and beautiful summer forest. The sun's rays penetrate through the crowns of trees, illuminating the green lawns and reflected in the clear water of a forest river. In the river, two girls bathe naked. When you look at the picture, you can feel the unbridled fun of these young ladies, they fervently frolic in the water, not embarrassed by their nakedness.

On the far bank sits a naked girl. Perhaps a few minutes ago she frolic in the water with her friends, and now she got a little tired, and decided to relax in the shade of a spreading bush. The girl is combing her long dark hair.

The picture is based on contradictions in the behavior of young girls. Representatives of a noble family behave with restraint, they are alien to the simple joys of ordinary girls. But they would like to behave also and feel free. From this their life seems to them boring and uninteresting. And on the cheeks of young ladies there was a blush from the random evidence of the obscene entertainment of a common people.
