"Making the Next Move" is a very typical example of Schroder's work. The figures sitting around the table debating their "next move" transports the viewer to the scene. You wonder what the topic of conversation is? Who are these finely dressed men? And what brings them all together? This fine example of Schroder's work illustrates his polished style and his rich detail.
Cavaliers playing cards, morning visitors, letter writes, a cavalier refreshing, the armourers or servants at their domestic duties constitute many of the subjects used in Schroder's interior scenes.
