In the image three figures appear in a field. A young woman dressed in a regional dress, an old woman to her right with a fan covering her face, and a man on horseback behind them. The trio is reminiscent of celestina scenes where the old woman acts as a procuress for the young woman, the young woman as a prostitute and the man as her client. The image is also related to some La Celestina illustrations by Picasso from the 1970s.
