Oil on oak panel
Private collection

On the road in the foreground stands an elegant couple, the father with his back to us looking at the figures on the frozen river, their son waiting patiently with his kolf club in his hand and their dog mesmerized by the figure passing in front of him holding a brace of waterfowl.
