Van Beyeren painted fish and lavish banquet pictures with vessels of silver and gold from early in his career. This is thought to be one of his earlier pictures of a banquet, dating perhaps from the 1640s. No dated still-life paintings before 1652 are known but the somewhat transparent paint and thinly painted background are thought to be characteristic of his early work.
