Typical of Mancadan's landcapes, the composition is separated into two distinct parts: the foreground with a herd of cattle and goats resting before ruins, flanked in sharp contrast by an extensive, distant view of a valley and mountain beyond. The subdued, limited palette, the unusual posture of the figures and the detailed brushwork are characteristic of the artist's highly individual style.


A government official who served as the burgomaster of Franeker and Leeuwarden, Mancadan is not thought to have started painting until he settled in Leeuwarden in 1645, a move presumably inspired by the Frisian scenery around his farm at Siegerswoude.
