Johan Christian Dahl enthusiastically described the present painting in a letter to the archaeologist C. J. Thomsen in August 1816 (Lødrup Bang 1987, ibid., p. 61): "It is almost finished and makes a striking effect. I am so pleased with it that I would like to live in this invincible castle like a little knight. This landscape is bright and gay on the whole.”
