The dramatic scene portrayed in this finely preserved sheet, in which a herdsman raising his staff to admonish his herd, is lashed by a driving wind, as he seeks shelter among the undergrowth and architectural fragments is, as Nina Wedde (see Literature) notes, an unusual subject matter for Moucheron.

Moucheron typically specialized in Italian views, Arcadian landscapes and idealized gardens and parks, however the influence of Gaspard Dughet, an artist whose work Moucheron closely studied during a visit to Italy, circa 1695 to 1697, is perhaps most clearly evident in this drawing, with its dynamic, stormy atmosphere. 

Stylistically this sheet can be closely compared with three similar drawings by Moucheron that remained together from the first half of the 18th Century, until their dispersal via auction in Amsterdam, in 1972 (see Provenance), before subsequently being reunited in the collection of the Harvard Art Museums, Cambridge, MA.1 All four drawings are not only united by their shared provenance, but also the manner in which they have been executed in the same media and technique, on sheets of nearly identical size. Robinson notes that all are similarly signed in the lower margin and inscribed with the number 10 on the verso and makes special mention of how all four sheets retain their ample margins and the original owner's black framing lines.2

Robinson goes on to hypothesize that the four drawings, with their common history and close relationship in format, style, and technique, could also share an iconographic connection, most plausibly the Seasons, however he notes that all four sheets differ from traditional images of the Seasons and that this idea, must remain speculative.3
