Van Aelst was one of the first Dutch still life painters to depict hunt trophies. Although a small number of paintings of game began to appear in Holland around 1640 not many Dutch artists painted the subject, perhaps because the market was small and hunting and shooting were not widely practiced in the Northern Netherlands.
