The child's mental world is one of many themes in Munch's art around the turn of the century, and children from the coastal village of Åsgårdstrand became an important group motif. Here Munch has placed four of the neighbours' children facing forwards against the yellow wall of his small house in Åsgårdstrand. The children are portrayed with a child-like trust in their expresssion, which also indicates a decorative intention.
