The painting from the Brukenthal National Museum is a banquet pantheon of the gods of Greco-Roman held in a grotto near shore. Somewhere in the background we can distinguish a secondary stage, directly related to the theme, triumphal cortege of Neptune and Amfitrita.

Recognized as a master in 1639/40, he becomes the dean of the painters' guild in Antwerp (1656-1657). In general, he was imitating his father's manner, especially in scenes with small figures, but he was strongly influenced by Peter Paul Rubens's style and colors. Notable fact, some of his works are signed autographs either directly with his father's name or with other names.
