The painting depicts a river landscape by moonlight, with a village on the left bank between trees. It is a characteristic example of the painter's nocturnal landscapes, a genre he produced throughout his career. Despite the many nocturnes that comprise his oeuvre, each one is unique and carefully rendered.
