oil on oak panel
Although the present painting does not appear to be a direct copy after a specific work by Wouwerman, it clearly draws inspiration from the hunting scenes which formed a staple throughout the artist's career, and were foremost among the works upon which his contemporary and later fame rested. Falcon hunting was a popular activity among all classes of the Dutch Republic, and pictures depicting this sport were especially popular with the art-collecting bourgeoisie, providing a release from the urban reality of daily life.
