signed lower left: "I v. Oosten"
Our painting shows several steps of wine cultivation. On the left side we can see the production of wine barrels. In the center left it is shown how the grapes are pressed for their juices.
Izaak van Oosten was a Flemish Baroque landscape and cabinet painter active in Antwerp. His compositions appear to have been popular and incorporate all the elements of the Antwerp school of landscape painting of the first half of the 17th century. He was strongly influenced by other Antwerp landscape painters, in particular Jan Brueghel the Elder, and contemporary Flemish painters such as Alexander Keirincx, Lucas van Uden and Jan Wildens. He was also influenced by the late work of Jan Brueghel the Younger.
Our painting is a typical work of van Oosten, showing open spaces in a hilly landscape filled with small clusters of trees. An even gentle light spreads over the entire painting and the trees are untouched by the wind.
