Biltius was a still life and trompe l’oeil painter. He regularly moved: he was active in his birthplace The Hague, in Amsterdam, Maastricht, Antwerp and in Bergen op Zoom.

His main artistic aim was to deceive the eye of his public. He skilfully painted all the different materials: the fur of a hare, the plumes of birds, a hunting horn, a game bag or a heavy curtain. See how a few small plumes are floating in the air.

By the middle of the 17th century more and more hunting still lifes were being painted in the Dutch Republic. An increasing number of Dutch people had become extremely rich, with for example the East Indies Company. They surrounded themselves in their luxurious country houses with hunting still lifes, though most of them were not allowed to hunt, for hunting was reserved to nobility.
