More About this Item


Description: This landscape is characteristic of the early works by Philps Wouwerman, resting travelers on a hilly terrain. Wowerman adopted this motif from his master Peter van Laer, with whom he studied after his return from Italy in the 1630's. Such depictions of travelers were popular in Italianate landscapes. The paintings reflect the experiences of travelers in a foreign country and are characterised by a rich artistic tradition, an exotic landscape and also the depiction of a different culture and religion.
According to Birgit Schumacher the painting is an early work by Philips Wouwerman, painted circa 1645. The pale sky, green, brown, and beige tones of the landscape, the fine depiction of the figures and horses and their bright colours are all indicative of such a date.
Dr. Birgit Schumacher will include this painting in the new edition of her catalogue raisoné as an authentic work by Philips Wouwerman.
