1323.  A colorful and charming landscape featuring a farmer fording a stream with a team of oxen.  They are pulling a wagon filled with hay.  A man sits on top of the hay stack, enjoying his ride.  A church and a barn with a water wheel sit on the far shore.  A pram is pulled up on the bank near a path that beckons into the woods.  Soft mountains provide a background for verdant trees.  The entire painting is finely executed with much detail.
