A charming Dutch painting in the Italianate style that was fashionable with Dutch artists from the mid 17th century into the 19th. Inspired by the sophisticated compositions of the Italian masters this, as yet unknown, artist has filled his scene with warm, Mediterranean light.
Italianate landscapes were the most influential and highly regarded.
From the 17th century a trip to Italy was considered an important part of an artist's training. Dutch painters went there to study the landscape, ancient ruins and sculptures, and the unique light. On their return to the Netherlands, many of these artists continued to paint Italianate landscapes, others adapted what they had learnt to suit the Dutch taste for religious and secular paintings.
