This Flemish pastoral scene was jointly painted by Gillis Peeters and David Teniers II. Teniers often collaborated with other artists in his work. It is likely that Peeters painted the landscape and Teniers the figures, each artist focusing on their individual strengths.
Teniers adds earthy humour to the scene with elements such as the figure urinating against a fence.
