Catalogue Note

Carel de Moor, a pupil of Gerrit Dou and Frans van Mieris, became one of the most successful fijnschilders of his day, receiving commissions not only from the local Leiden municipal authorities and residents but also from foreign nobility.  He was patronized by the Archduke of Tuscany, Peter the Great and King Charles VI, who knighted him.  A similar version of this composition, signed Car. d. Moor, oil on canvas 62 by 75 cm., with an added figure and differences in the details of the landscape, is in the Rijksmuseum, Amsterdam, inv. no. A 640.
