This extravagant, indulgent scene with its rich, intense colours and textures reflects the wealth and aspirations of the Dutch Golden Age. Weenix’s paintings are renowned for their subjects that often feature dead game and scenes of the hunt. In this scene, the wonders of architecture and the abundance of nature are celebrated. The dramatic style of the painting reflects the demand for large still life and landscape paintings that were popular at the turn of the eighteenth century. The painting is one of thirteen by Weenix that can be found at the Wallace Collection; the theatrical use of lighting and highly decorative style makes it a beautiful accessory.
