Description
1 print :
The smaller of the boys holds the reins and raises his brush eagerly to beat the horse; the man wears a high, shallow-brimmed hat, has a stalk of grass between his lips, carries a walking (?) stick in his left hand, and has his right hand in his trouser pocket. He looks downwards in weary resignation. A small dog walks in front, while to the right, in the background, domestic fowl shelter (from the rain?) under a wooden awning. In the background to the left is a notice on a post, which begins: Take notice ... Houses are visible in the distance. Diagonal lines suggest that rain is falling, but shadows cast by the wall behind, and (in the opposite direction) by the horse, suggest that the sun is shining.
