The journey of Tobias from the Apocryphal Book of Tobit provided artists with an opportunity to combine biblical narrative with a rich and capricious landscape. Van Wtenbrouck followed the landscape model of the prominent Flemish artist Paul Bril (1554-1626), which is characterized by expansive vistas, and situated his figures of Tobias and the Angel in a vast invented landscape that recedes gradually into the distance.
