Though Jacob Cats is perhaps best known for his portrayals of winter scenes, a tradition and subject matter held dear in the hearts of generations of Dutch and Flemish artists, depictions of more temperate climes, such as that found in the present work, are not unheard of in his graphic oeuvre.

This particularly tranquil depiction of village life on the banks of a river, which according to an inscription on the verso, was intended by Cats to depict the confluence of the Rivers Gein and Vecht, seems more plausibly to represent the river Angstel (which does merge with the Vecht) and is often referred to as Gein.
