Cornelis Saftleven was a versatile Dutch painter from Rotterdam. At the start of his career he spent a few years in Flanders, in Antwerp, where he must have seen paintings representing the Ark of Noah, which was a popular, typically Flemish, Catholic subject.

The Rijksmuseum in Amsterdam holds preparatory drawings by Cornelis Saftleven for two of our animals.
