River landscape with popular life scene
Oil painting on canvas
62 x 98
Framed 74 x 110 cm.
We present this vast and harmonious composition, where a characteristic river landscape acts as a stage for an exquisite extract of popular life, set in a small village on the edge of a lush stream.
The painting, which presents characters unequivocally linked to the Flemish culture of the second half of the 17th century, shows iconographic and stylistic correspondences, in particular, with the successful production of Adrien Frans Boudewijns (1644-1711), here in collaboration with Pieter Bout (1658- 1719).
Aside from the figure of duck hunter along the waterway, the rest of the protagonists of the scene are confined to a pleasant family scenario, animated by many figures busy in their varied daily activities; there is the mother and grandmother who look after a newborn baby, a young man intent on watching the herd while he drinks, the old men playing and conversing around a table, another woman intent on cooking, with a dog that seems to look at her curiously.
The work is characterized by an extremely meticulous pictorial rendering, the details are portrayed with the proverbial Flemish expertise typical of the two authors, the first dedicated to the landscape and naturalistic details, the second to the characters who complete the composition.
The painting is in excellent condition, it is accompanied by a golden frame.
The work, like all our objects, is sold accompanied by a certificate of photographic authenticity in accordance with the law.
