This tapestry is from the Renaissance painting by Peter Brueghel (Bruegel) the elder. A Flemish painter and print maker,he painted this summer landscape in 1565. This is one of six panels painted by the artist for the suburban Antwerp home of the wealthy merchant Niclaes Jongelinck, one of the artist's most enthusiastic patrons.

Jongelinck owned no less than sixteen of Bruegel's works. The series, which represented the seasons or times of the year, included six works, five of which survive. The other four are: The Gloomy Day, The Return of the Herd, The Harvest, and Hunters in the Snow (all Kunsthistorisches Museum, Vienna). This scene is thought to represent June and July. The oil on wood painting is part of the Lobkowicz family collection in Lobkowicz Palace in Prague Castle.

This tapestry has a rod pocket incorporated in the lining on the back for hanging.
