    These paintings originally formed part of a wall panelling of a canal house on the Keizersgracht in Amsterdam, which in the 18th century was the antechamber of the house of Jacobus Ploos van Amstel (1735-1784), doctor and type founder, and his wife Sara Troost (1732-1803), daughter of the Amsterdam artist Cornelis Troost (1696-1750).
