    The present work is typical of Jan Siberechts's works of the 1660s, before he was invited by the Duke of Buckingham to work in England. His early works reveal the influence of such Dutch Italianate landscape painters as Nicolaes Berchem and Karel Dujardin, but from around 1661 he developed a very personal style of landscape painting, with an emphasis on the Flemish countryside and the rustic life of the peasants. The figures he introduced into the foreground of his landscape settings were now larger and took on a paramount importance, standing out as they did against the brightly lit countryside. Often these scenes would depict peasant women going about their daily routine, carrying goods, accompanied by their livestock. The colours Siberechts uses in the present landscape are also very typical of this period: the reds and whites for the peasants' clothes contrasting against the subtle silvery-blue greens of the surrounding plants and vegetation.
