Didactic Information Nicolaes Berchem belonged to the second generation of Dutch Italiantes, a group who depicted the Italian countryside. These paintings were in high demand in Holland, and during the 17th century, landscape painting flourished as an independent genre in the Dutch Republic and Spanish Netherlands. This genre consists of landscape, seascape, still life, and everyday life paintings. Many factors that gave rise to this style of painting, however the most significant influence was the urbanization of European society during the 16th and 17th century.

Durante el siglo XVII, la pintura de paisajes floreció como un género independiente en la República Holandesa y los Países Bajos Españoles. Este género consiste en paisaje, paisaje marino, naturaleza muerta, y pinturas de la vida cotidiana. Muchos factores dieron lugar a este estilo de pintura, sin embargo, la influencia más significativa fue la urbanización de la sociedad europea durante los siglos XVI y XVII.
