Description: Property from a New England Estate Salomon Rombouts (Dutch, c. 1652-1702) Winter Scene with Figures Oil on panel 20 x 16 ¾ inches Shickman Gallery Label on verso Estimate: $5,000-10,000 Active during the latter half of the Dutch Golden Age, Salomon Rombouts (c. 1652-1702) painted principally atmospheric landscapes of the Dutch countryside in the manner of his contemporary Jacob van Ruisdael. Adhering to the popular style of the “classic” landscape, Rombouts structured his compositions around religious or vernacular architecture and typically included an array of small figures at work or play. His contrasts of light and dark and an abundance of cloud formations successfully impart a sense of drama to his work. Although winter scenes, a preferred subject of the period, and popular among collectors are included within the oeuvre of Rombouts, they mark a rare departure from his characteristic use of warmer tones. Anchored by the barren tree dominating the foreground of the composition, Winter Scene with Figures effectively allow the figures to be featured, while the snow-covered ground and trees illuminate the scene.

Bell & Sons Publishers, 1904) National Gallery of Art, Painting in the Dutch Golden Age: A Profile of the Seventeenth Century (Washington: National Gallery of Art, 2007)
