This black and white etching depicts a winter scene along a harbor. A line of many boats with high masts separates the water from the land at a diagonal from the lower right corner up to the center of the horizon line. On the left side of the horizon line there is a row of tall buildings. On the left and center in the mid-ground are crowds of figures and horse-drawn carriages along the snowy shore. The upper two-thirds of the composition are devoted to the lightly crosshatched sky. <br />

St. John the Evangelist sits in the foreground with a book open on his knee and quill pen poised over its pages. Two books rest next to him and an eagle has alighted on an adjacent rock. St. John looks up and to his right to see a standing figure of the Virgin Mary holding the infant Christ, who appear in a glowing mandorla hovering in the sky. A vast panoramic view of a bustling harbor and formidable mountains unfolds behind St. John and extends into the distance.

This watercolor on Japan paper, mounted on board, is vertically oriented. The piece is very dark, with the forms barely visible and very abstract. The upper quarter of the piece is blue, white, and pink (presumably a morning sky). In the next quarter down is what appears to be a body of water reflecting the sky, which a city and hills on the fall side of the shore from the viewer. The lower half the work has abstract figures in brown and cream that appear to be on the shore. Compositionally, there is a zig-zag recession into space. The piece is surrounded by the white border of the board that it is mounted on.
