Pastoral country scene in the Roman countryside
canvas (original) 91cm by 73 cm Beautiful
regency frame 111 cm by 94 cm
Our painting represents a pastoral country scene and in the Roman countryside . Our two characters, the shepherd and rider seem to
discuss about a way to go (without apparently agreement about it)!
The composition is rich. The depth is enhanced by the choice of
the artist who proposes three color planes like the Flemish masters of the 17th ( Joos Mompert ... ): In the foreground, where the characters are, brown and after that the green dominates the second ( where the pyramid is) and finally blue for the far plane
( where mountains are ) .
