Spring , Nicolaes de Bruyn, after Maerten de Vos, c. 1600

engraving, h 220mm × w 283mm More details

True to tradition certain elements recur in illustrations of the months of April and May. April is often associated with working the land and May with boating and carefree outdoor parties. In this representation of spring the designer incorporated features of both months; and, even cattle breeding is included. In the background farmers can be seen washing their sheep prior to shearing them.
