This young shepherdess with her flock of sheep compares to earlier works by French artists such as Jean-François Millet and Camille Corot. Mauve was one of a group of Dutch artists, known as the HagueSchool, who were inspired by their interpretation of light and nature. Mauve applied similar ideas to his paintings of the Dutch heathlands in the area of Gooi.
