Jacob de Wit specialized in decorative paintings for town and country houses. He designed entire ensembles, with large paintings and overdoors set in panels. He decided where the paintings were to be placed and adapted the compositions and the fall of light accordingly. This painting and its pendant (to the left of the mantelpiece) were made for the country house of an Amsterdam citizen situated along the River Vecht.

On display in room 1.2 Artemis/Diana
