Marienhof is known as a history painter, and landscapes such as this are extremely rare. Most of his pictures were painted in Utrecht before 1650, by which year, according to Houbraken, he had moved to Brussels. The present picture, one of his latest works, shows the influence of Brussels School landscapists such as Lodewijk de Vadder and Jacques d'Arthois.
