The Cabriolet is especially engaging as a measured, dignified presentation of a humble means of transportation and of peasants in proud relation to their terrains. The print is also an early example of figures and animals in particular –– both the horse and the cattle in the background –– given prominence over the forms and personality of the landscape. Perhaps inspired by Bleker, Paul Potter would specialize in etchings that focused on such stolid creatures, establishing a genre of Dutch and later European printmaking
