At least 35 more paintings by this master can been identified in other collections. The Master of the Rosenborg Hunting Scenes took the inspiration for his charming, yet naive hunting landscapes mainly from drawings or graphic material by Jacob and Roelant Savery, Gillis van Coninxloo, David Vinckboons and Antonio Tempesta. His innovative juggling with the available model-sheets enabled him to create ever more new compositions based on a limited number of resources. Even though the Master of the Rosenborg Hunting Scenes was an average artist, he definitely had a significant production of paintings with a clearly marketed profile as the heir of Coninxloo and Vinckboons. His technique is traditional and well-orchestrated; balanced preparations with underdrawing and reserves in the paint layers enabled him to speed up his production. In this way the Master of the Rosenborg Hunting Scenes’ paintings, inhabited by figures and animals borrowed from Tempesta, were exported throughout Europe as typical Flemish landscapes – his works ending up in princely collections in Rome [i][i][i][i] and in the living room of Christian IV of Denmark.

The author of this article attributed a group of paintings in the Winter Room at Rosenborg Castle to an artist which he named the Rosenborg Master and concluded that, among others, a group of landscapes in the Palazzo Pallavicini-Rospigliosi in Rome are by the same hand (Wadum 1987A). Independently, Marijke de Kinkelder named this artist the Master of the Hunting Scenes in 2002 and compiled an oeuvre of at least 11 paintings. During the Gerson project De Kinkelder recognized that these two nameless artists were one and the same: the Master of the Rosenborg Hunting Scenes. Much earlier Sturla Gudlaugsson (1931-1971) studied the works in the Palazzo Pallavicini-Rospigliosi in Rome, naming the artist the Master of the Pallavicini landscapes (Visual Documentation, RKD). Seven works by the master are to be found in this collection (four illustrated here).
