About this artwork

The wealthy burgher who is the focal point of this painting proudly draws our attention to his possessions. The estate that stretches into the distance belongs to him as do the happy woman at his side and the children around him. the children's maid and the gardener are in his service and the terrace on which he stands indicates the grandeur of his house.
