Oil on copper. Flemish school of the seventeenth century of a disciple of Jan Brueghel the Younger.
This delicate painting is part of the genre reinvented around 1600 by Jan Brueghel the Elder and perpetuated by his son: "the fluvial landscape". Faithful to the stylistic canons of the genre, our painter strives to present the activity of men in a harmonious setting where sky, water and earth unite. A real magic emanates from this painting on copper which seems to pay homage to the divine through the lines of light descending from the sky.
Sold with a blackened and gilded wooden frame on the guillochures of the 17th century.
Dimensions: 15.7 x 20.7 cm copper - 28 x 33.5 cm with frame
