Follower of Pierre Patel.

In compositional terms, this picture looks to the work of Pierre Patel, a painter of landscapes, dominated by Classical ruins. The dimensions of this piece suggest this painting was originally intended to form part of the panelled decoration in a grand house.

Its earthy colour scheme, mountainous landscape and Classical elements lend this painting a certain grandeur. The peasants in the foreground, working and resting, on the other hand, allow for a more humble interpretation of the scene. The picture is of good scale and rectangular shape, allowing for it to be displayed in a number of locations about the house.
