    LITERATURE:
    Hans-Ulrich Beck, Jan van Goyen 1596-1656, Amsterdam 1973, vol.II, cat. no. 13, pp.8-9, ill. p.8

    Beck records approximately sixty tondos by Van Goyen, this being a format that the artist returned to periodically during a period that stretched from 1620 to 1650, although the majority of these was executed prior to 1630. Such charming roundels of particularly landscape subjects were in great demand in the Low Countries during the first decades of the seventeenth century, as can be attested to by those examples by Abel Grimmer (1573-1619) in Antwerp, Hendrik Avercamp (1585-1635), who painted several round winter landscapes in Amsterdam, and Esaias van de Velde (1587-1630), to whom van Goyen was apprenticed in Haarlem and who exerted a strong influence on the artist until the mid 1620s.
