Fascinated by the picturesque splendor of small cottage gardens, Mühlig treated this topic in a few variations. The “Late summer on the Lower Rhine” is definitely a highlight in this small series. With fine brushstrokes, Mühlig sketches the splendor of the flowers in the garden, making the colours shine under the blue of a cloudless sky. The sunflowers in the middle could stand as a symbol for light, which he bundles again on the white-painted wall. The little girl in the middle of the picture has shouldered the rake to pause for a moment while the adults continue to work. Above all lies the impression of rural peace, even if the first harbingers of industrialization can already be seen on the distant horizon. .
