When Pyke Koch exhibited his painting 'The shooting gallery' at the Rotterdam Art Circle in 1931, the director of the Boymans Museum, Dirk Hannema, immediately wanted to obtain the work. To fund the substantial purchase he turned to five wealthy citizens, including the banker Jacob Mees. The acquisition resulted in a lasting friendship between Koch and the Mees family. In 1932 he painted their young son Peter, and about seven years later this portrait of Jacob Mees.
