This is one of the most important early landscapes in the Tate Collection and one of several Siberechts painted of this view of Henley-on-Thames. The figures to the left, pulling the heavily-laden barge along the river Thames, remind us that this is a working countryside, and that waterways were vital for the transportation of food and goods. The detail, light and shadow are typical of his Flemish style and even though the perspective is distorted and the view has been embellished a little, the image is far more realistic in style than landscapes by British artists of the same period.
