The Leiden painter G.J. Bos specialized in painting landscapes and animals, and in depicting livestock in particular. An animal market, a sheepfold, stable interiors with donkeys or horses and depictions of rabbits, chickens, ducks or goats make up his oeuvre. Genre pieces or portraits are rare, despite the fact that he was taught by his fellow townsman Jacobus Ludovicus Cornet, portrait and history painter. Bos was also an etcher and lithographer, and in addition to oil paintings he also made drawings and illustrations.
