Description The simplicity and quietude of this scene are characteristic of Dutch scenes of everyday life entwinned with the land and water. A young man fishes from the side of a river while a tradesman with his pack walks past on one of the walkways that line the sides of such waterways. The popularity of scenes featuring working men and women was a uniquely Dutch phenomenon.
