Daily life scene situated in a farmyard.
On the left, a woman half-turning her back, draws water from the well and chats with the other characters.
In the middle a woman is seated with a basket on her lap: she has just fed the cock, hens, and chicks which are pecking about at her feet. A child is eating bread and butter which his dog is peering greedily at.
On the right, a man is back from the fields carrying his scythe over his shoulder.
The details on the garments and on the poultry feathers are remarkable.
