Biography


Jacob de Wit was at his time one of the most famous and most expensive artists, especially known for his wall and ceiling decorations in churches and palaces of rich noblemen.

Our picture clearly shows that he was mainly influenced by Peter Paul Rubens (1577-1640) and the Antwerp school, where he studied from 1708-1712, and it gives a very nice example for his baroque painting style.

In 1713 de Wit became member of the Antwerp painters' guild, but nevertheless he decided to go back to his hometown Amsterdam, where he became a well-known artist.

De Wit often mentioned the client's name at the back side of his pictures, sometimes also the date and purpose. At our painting there are no notes on verso, maybe because the ceiling painting never has been realized.
