Jan Willem van Borselen mainly painted landscapes, for which he gained inspiration in the watery surroundings of The Hague: Gouda, Zoetermeer and Stompwijk. Especially the way in which he could display water, reeds and trees in the wind, received much admiration. King William III and his (second) wife Queen Emma were lovers of the work of the painter and gave him various assignments. They also invited him to Het Loo Palace, their summer residence. Van Borselen also made sketch tours around Apeldoorn, where he gained ideas for his paintings. During his walks, the king accompanied him regularly. The painter later said that he had never worked outside so pleasantly.
