Jacob Biltius was a Dutch still life painter who worked in various places including The Hague, Amsterdam, Antwerp and Leeuwarden. He was known for his game still life, kitchen still life and trompe- l'oeuil still lifes.
By the middle of the 17th century hunting still lifes had become very popular in the Dutch Republic. As an increasing number of Dutch people had become prosperous, they wished to display in their sumptuous country houses hunting still lifes, which expressed their high social status even though Dutch burghers were not allowed to hunt unless they were of the nobility
Biltius created many trompe l'oeil compositions between 1663 and 1677. He was a pioneer in creating the illusion of three dimensional objects in these works
