Rombout Verhulst came from Mechelen (in present day Belgium) to Amsterdam to work on the decoration of Amsterdam’s new town hall (now the Palace on Dam Square). He later settled in The Hague, where he made this statue of Prudentia. Together with a counterpart, it adorned the gate of Zwaansvliet, a country estate built by the merchant François van Os in the Beemster Polder around 1628.
