Description: Probably painted by different hands, the copper plates, which perhaps once formed two decorative door panels for a cabinet, have since been joined together and mounted within a modern frame. The central panel depicts a vast river landscape featuring the scene of „Tobias bidding farewell to his father". In contrast to this narrative the four tondi contain allegories of the four seasons, whilst the two lateral panels feature architectural capricci. The four horizontal panels depict a harbour scene with the unloading of ships (probably a later addition), a mythological scene, a battle scene and the depiction of a peasant family within an agricultural landscape.
