Born into a family of Amsterdam jewellers, Hendrick Jacobsz Dubbels lived in the city all his life. He was a pupil of the artists Simon de Vlieger and Abraham de Verwer, but also admired the work of Jan van de Cappelle and the younger Willem Van de Velde, two other successful marine painters. Ludolf Bakhuizen joined him as his pupil and the two painters continued to work together at least until the middle 1660s. They both became members of the Amsterdam Guild. Besides seascapes and views on inland waters he painted a few winter landscapes.

Seventeenth-century Dutch seascapes remained popular in the eighteenth century. We can imagine that this painting, deliberately created to offer a similar image to those being painted by the most famous Dutch marine artists, would have offered a distinctive commentary on the owner's taste as an art collector and connoisseur. In a very public and formal room, this commentary would have been a very public one.
