A depiction of a young boy and girl (brother and sister), who are sitting in a clearing against a tree beneath its shade, surrounded by woodland. Marcel is wearing blue shorts, a loose, sleeveless, white T-shirt with a wide brimmed hat, and he sits with a knife for peeling their fruit. Marcel's sister is eating a piece of fruit and sits with her right hand resting on a picnic basket. Between the siblings lies a newspaper, on which a selection of fruit has been placed.
