The Amsterdam painter Jacob de Wit lived from 1708 to 1715 in Antwerp. While following a painting course there, he studied the work of Rubens which, at that time, was still very much in evidence in Antwerp. In particular copies of his ceiling paintings were very instructive for De Wit. On his return to Amsterdam in 1716, he soon received commissions to decorate houses and church interiors with ceiling and door panels and colourful wall-hangings. De Wit's enormous output brought him great fame and fortune. Another of his specialities was his grey-tinted painted imitations of stucco. These grisailles were sometimes called 'Witjes' after the artist to whom they had brought such fame.
