Depicts a landscape seen across the Nile from the island of Gezireh, with two small sailing boats (Felucca) on dark blue water. Palm trees and two animals stand on the bank, and a town covers the hills on the other side of the water. Gezira (Arabic for 'island'), is an island in the Nile at Cairo, noted for its gardens. Gezira is actually the name of the island where this painting was made.
