This plate belongs to a series of twelve that shows the passing of the seasons. Various prints depicting the months of the year were used as inspiration for Dutch month dishes, e.g.: by Pieter Brueghel the Elder (circa 1525-1569), David Vinckboons (1576-1632) and Hans Bol (1534-1593). A similar plate can be found in the Philadelphia Museum of Art Collection, Accession number: 1921-3-32.
