This is evident from the signature 'd'Jonge Berchem' ('The Young Berchem'), displayed on the painting Zuidelijk landschap met door een rivier trekkende herders en hun dieren, (Southern landscape with shepherds crossing a river with their cattle) (fig. 2). Nicolaes de Jonge was born in 1649 in Haarlem and died at the age of 22 in Paris.
