After his return from Italy (by 1653), Lingelbach was increasingly influenced by the work of the successful and prolific Philips Wouwermans and, in particular, by his landscapes containing figures at work or on horseback. This is an excellent example of his work in the manner of Wouwermans. There are also a number of paintings by Wouwermans in the National Gallery's Collection.
