The picture shows fashion and clothes of the Baroque period and the time of the Thirty-Years-War. On the garden terrace you can see some spruced-up court-ladies and gentlemen. Their different styles of clothing show the transition from Spanish fashion to Baroque-style. The high society is standing above the stairs, the soldiers and a maid below them.
