The doctor Johannes Huiber Prins was an autodidact in art and became a board member of the Confrerie Pictura, The Hague in 1785. He is best known for his (often imaginary) topographical drawings and cityscapes. Prins also worked after 17th century artists of which our drawing is a fine example.

The original drawing by Potter preserved in the collection Institut Néerlandais, collection Frits Lugt, Paris. [1][2]
