18th-Century Classical Landscape With Peasant Family

Regular price £1,495.00

DESCRIPTION

An extensive 18th-century classical landscape depicting a peasant family, surrounded by their cattle, resting on a river bank outside the City gates.

This style of landscape painting was made popular by the Dutch in the 17th-century. In contrast to their Italian counterparts, the Dutch were less interested in classically-influenced historical scenes, in favour of depicting popular subjects involving everyday people.

By the 18th-century, this approach had influenced artists (and buyers) throughout Europe and this particular painting certainly bears the hallmarks of the Dutch tradition. We acquired the painting in Germany and it’s plausible that it could possibly be of Dutch origin.

It’s a nice size and would easily become a decorative focal point in a large sitting room or dining room.

The painting is housed in a beautiful wooden and stucco swept frame.

Framing

If the images display the artwork framed, then the frame is included in the price. For those that are unframed, we can handle the framing for you should you wish. We always try to source frames that are appropriate for the age of the painting but can also provide contemporary alternatives if you prefer. You only pay for the cost of the actual frame (usually £30 - £50) as we include the labour for free.
