In the work "In the front of the country house", Broge shows a harmonious scene with a young woman dressed sitting in the front steps of her country house concentrating on handicrafts. The whitewashed house is overgrown with climbing plants and stands on a massive stone foundation. Broge manages to convey the calm and serenity of the scene through a clear composition of the picture elements and a balanced colour arrangement.
