The influence of several Italianisti is palpable in his work: Dujardin and Berchem among them, although his paintings show most affinity with Jan Asselijn, who also influenced him in the painting of winter landscapes. The present jewel-like winter scene however is reminiscent of Philips Wouwerman, especially in the depiction of the sky (indeed, an old French inscription on the reverse of the panel reads 'Philippe Wouwerman'). The hill rising beyond the village is in reality most likely a dune.
