Everyday life in Biedermeier Germany as portrayed by Johann Michael Voltz (otherwise known for his anti-Napoleonic prints). A beautifully equipped nursery in which the little girls can live out their future life in advance.
The children come in to wish their mother a happy birthday, bringing a wreath and appropriate gifts (including, it would seem, a bottle of mother's ruin).
Wash-day; we are inclined to forget how much of a business this would have been in a large household.
The poultry-yard, and what an array too, including turkeys, and with peacocks on the wall (though from past experience I don't recommend them as neighbours).
The annual market, drawing sellers and entertainers from far and wide. Circus folk can be seen in the background, but this print concentrates especially on the ballad singer. While the singer sings his song, his assistant points to the appropriate picture, and the woman sells printed copies of the ballad. Reminds me of the scene in the Threepenny Opera: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1bjIGM0U138
An everyday market scene, with houseplants for sale beside the vegetables.
