For this present work Eymer might have turned to B.C. Koekkoek for inspiration. The soft golden light and the inclusion of travellers in a romantic landscape suggest Eymers admiration for B.C. Koekkoek, who in his turn was inspired by the Dutch Italianate painters of the seventeenth century, collectively known as the Bamboccianti, especially Pieter van Laer and Jan Both.
