Juriaan Andriessen specialised in large-scale decorative schemes, such as his decoration of the new theatre in Amsterdam in 1774, and painted wall-coverings for manufacture, mainly for private residences. On this painting an Arcadian landscape is depicted with washerwomen on a road, a young family resting nearby.
