The plate depicts peasant´s knitting in a cottage in the light of an open fire. It was lithographed after an original by Kilian Zoll and published for the work "Bilder ur svenska folklifvet". The plate is accompanied by a descriptive text leaf in swedish, german and english. The captions at the plate are also in three languages. This is a fine example of an early colour printed lithograph of high quality. Arnz & Co. was one of the leading firms in this area. Kilian Zoll was strongly influenced by the Düsseldorf School of painting depicting peasant life, landscapes, estates etc. He loved to hike across the country and record his influences in his sketch book and on canvas.
