Jacquemart made this print after the painting (71.125) by the Dutch Italianate artist as part of a portfolio celebrating the founding collection of the Metropolitan Museum of Art. In his review of the prints, the British critic and etching advocate, Philip Gilbert Hamerton lauded this plate, declaring, "I had not myself supposed that etching could go so far as this in the imitation of a painter’s manner." Unlike many of the other artists in the portfolio, Berchem made his own etchings, so it is possible Jacquemart had the opportunity to examine the seventeenth-century artist’s own approach to printmaking.
