ABOUT THIS PIECE Baroque Golden Age Painter Jan Asselijn's The Threatened Swan was created in 1652 and the painting is in Rijksmuseum, Amsterdam. The original size of the work is 144 x 171 cm and is made of oil on canvas. A swan fiercely defends its nest against a dog. In later centuries this scuffle was interpreted as a political allegory: the white swan was thought to symbolize the Dutch statesman Johan de Witt (assassinated in 1672) protecting the country from its enemies. This was the meaning attached to the painting when it became the very first acquisition to enter the Nationale Kunstgalerij (the forerunner of the Rijksmuseum) in 1880. The Artist: Jan Asselijn (c.1610 - 1652), was a Dutch Golden Age painter. He was one of the first Dutch painters who introduced a fresh and clear manner of painting landscapes in the style of Claude Lorraine, and his example was speedily followed by other artists.
