The painter Dirk Valkenburg spent several years in Suriname at the plantations of the Amsterdam merchant Jonas Witsen, who commissioned him to paint this scene of an orange plantation. Several Indians – the original inhabitants of this territory – appear among the palm trees in the foreground, while the plantation owner’s residence can be glimpsed in the background.
