Between around 1880 and 1940 Adriaan de la Rivière painted in a light-footed, impressionistic style strongly narrative genre pieces of everyday life in the city and in the country. His oeuvre includes cityscapes with many figures, inn scenes, market stalls with all kinds of vendors, farmers working in the fields and park scenes. The painter was trained at the Academy of Rotterdam and studied on a scholarship in Munich. Between 1894 and 1896 he was a board member of the Kunstkring.
