Ask anything

  • Dr. Andreas Hillebrand asked

    Is the client or patron of the painting known?

  • Museum Boijmans Van Beuningen answered

    Hi Andreas, the first known owner of this painting was a person named Eberhard Jabach (1618-1695). We, however, do not know if he was the one who commisioned it. After Jabach's, the painting came in the collection of King Louis XIV. Kind regards, Els

  • Carlotta asked

    I'm a university student, I have to do a video for one of my class, I would like to know if it is possible to have more information about this paint (description of the scene, details in the foreground/ in the background).

    Best regards. Carlotta Todaro.

  • Museum Boijmans Van Beuningen answered

    Hi Carlotta, I can't really tell you more about the scene itself. I would have to go to the library and look this up myself. I would advise you to search the artist, and see if there are certain characteristics of their work you can connect back to this piece. For example, this painting was dated using a reference work in Casino Ludovisi in Rome: 'Aurora'-fresco. If you contact bibliotheek@boijmans.nl they will have more information for you. For example, in our records there are two citations:
    \A \\Corpus of Italian Paintings from the Seventeenth and Eighteenth Centuries in Dutch Public Collections - nr. 80
    Cat. Legaat Vitale Bloch, 1978, no 16
    Best of luck with your class! Best, Lisa
