Lot Essay

Leemans specialized in still lifes with hunting implements hanging on a plastered wall, pictures that became especially popular among local connoisseurs in the middle of the 17th century due to the fact that The Hague was surrounded by a number of fertile hunting grounds (see E. Buijsen, 'Tussen "Konsthemel" en Aarde: Panorama van de schilderkunst in Den Haag tussen 1600 en 1700', in Haagse Schilders in de Gouden Eeuw, Zwolle, 1998, p. 37).
