A convoy of travellers in horse-drawn carriages encounters a group of peasants dancing to the music of a violin.

A characteristic feature of landscape paintings by Jan Brueghel, son of Pieter Bruegel the Elder, is the way the background opens up to a vast valley, providing a view of the town in the far distance.
