Description An exquisitely detailed genre scene of a young peasant boy and girl playing with the ducks by the pool of water trickling idly by from the water wheel of the aged mill; despite its seeming state of disrepair, it is actively being used as smoke drifts from the chimney stack. Inordinately rich and full of complexity, the foliage of the glade is vivid and of notable breadth with small trails worn into the soil where mosses meander and fallen trunks are surrounded by ferns. In the distance a shepherd leads his flock through a wooded pass.

While her works rarely show up on the open market, Sotheby's carried another scene titled "A Mill by the Canal", which sold for $ 12,000 USD in 2005.

Measurements: 32 1/4" H x 44 1/4" W x 2 3/4" D [frame]; 25 3/8" H x 37 1/2" W [canvas]
