This view of a rugged country road winding through an English woodland exemplifies the picturesque tradition in landscape painting. The term "picturesque" is applied to paintings of pleasing natural settings that contain elements of wildness or irregularity.

Barker's landscape style derives from Thomas Gainsborough, whose work he copied and imitated.
