Born in Altona, near Hamburg, at a young age Cats was brought by his parents to live in Amsterdam.  In early 1759, he found employment in the wall-decoration workshop of a certain Jan Hendrik Troost van Groenendoelen, and in May 1762 he set up his own business, producing, with considerable success, the painted wall-hangings that were so popular in Amsterdam interiors of the period.  Eventually, however, this fashion began to decline, and Cats then turned his hand to the production of highly finished landscape drawings and watercolours such as this, an art in which he became the leading figure in late-18th century Holland.
