This is a wonderful traditional winter scene of a mid 19th century village in the Holland country side. The composition is full of fun and classic winter activity including towns people sledding and ice skating on the lake which has now frozen. While it is the winter time Springer Jr. still bring some warmth into the picture with a nice blue sky with white puffy clouds. In tehe far right background of the painting a windmill is visible which is a common depiction for the Dutch country side and a enjoyed one at that. Their is such wonderful detail in this oil painting on wood panel and its obvious why Springer Jr. is enjoyed by so many people.

This painting does has damage around the border where the frame rubbed causing paint loss and an even craquelure.
