olieverf op doek, h 215cm × w 134cm. More details

Together with A Hunter’s Bag on a Terrace, Hondecoeter painted this work for Soestdijk Palace. Here the light comes from the right, in the other work from the left. This difference in the fall of light reveals that he took account of the paintings’ original placement to either side of a window.
