The assured brushwork and the highlights on the edges of the rocks and the foliage indicate that this painting belongs to Teniers' Brussels period. Teniers moved to Brussels in 1651 when he became court painter to Archduke Leopold William, Governor of the southern Netherlands.
In depictions of landscapes with peasants resting such as this, Teniers adopts a type of setting developed in the 16th century and propagated by artists such as Joos de Momper the Younger - namely a rocky landscape with a view of a green valley, the 17th century response to the 'world landscapes' of artists such as Pieter Bruegel the Elder and Joachim Patinir.
