The subject of this work is related to Ovid's Fasti (5:121–4), which tells how the infant Jupiter was suckled by the goat, Amalthea. It remains a matter of debate whether Berchem travelled to Italy, but a pronounced change in his post-1650 paintings toward more Italianate settings and an increased output of mythological subjects, accompanied by a more sensitive treatment of light, certainly suggests so; in any case, he was undoubtedly inspired by his contemporaries who returned to Haarlem from the south to work in the Italianate style.
