This image is inspired by the family portrait The daughters of Sir Matthew Decker, painted by Dutch artist Jan van Meyer in 1718. Matthew Decker was a wealthy merchant who accumulated a large collection of art from around the world. This collection was eventually inherited by his grandson Richard FitzWilliam, 7th Viscount FitzWilliam and son of one of the four daughters depicted here. Richard FitzWilliam’s bequest lead to the foundation of the Fitzwilliam Museum in 1816.
