Herkomer painted genre scenes of Bavarian peasants throughout his career. He produced several drawings of Bavarian and Alpine scenes for The Graphic magazine in the 1870’s, and his first major exhibited painting, After the Toil of the Day, shown at the Royal Academy in 1873, was set in the village of Garmisch in the Bavarian Tyrol. In November 1885 he exhibited a group of watercolours, drawn at Ramsau in Bavaria earlier that year, at the Fine Art Society in London, under the title Life and Work in the Bavarian Alps.
