Schouman’s impact on Meertens can be particularly keenly felt in the present work, both in the artist’s choice of subject matter, as well as the numerous stylistic similarities present. Both artists spent considerable time studying animals and birds in the famous menagerie of exotic creatures assembled by the Stadtholder, Prince William V of Orange-Nassau (1748-1806) at his country residence, Het Kleine Loo, on the outskirts of The Hague, with the resulting works, occasionally, proving a challenge to distinguish between the two artists.
