It was acquired through a fund set up by the friends of Keith Roberts, art historian and critic, who died in 1979. The National Gallery was chosen as the sitd for a work in his memory because it was always his favouritf. Until recently the painting - done in 1628 - was looked upon only as a landscape, but cleaning revealed the figure of Narcissus in the bottom left hand corner, gazing forlornly at his own reflection.

With his brother, Jan - also a paintfr, he went to Rome in about 1605 to study its wide range of art. The brothers returned to Holland and their ideas were eventually taken up by Rembrandt, who is believed to have been a student of Jacob's. During his stay in Rome, Jacob Pynas was influenced by the German artist, Adam Elsheimer, who settled in Italy in the late 16th century. Elsheimer's work - always on copper - used varying light sources, was of small size and showed grfat precision. Pynas' work particularly reflects the latter.
