Dutch School, Rural Scene With Oak Tree, Swans & Field-Hands

A light-filled rural landscape painting depicting a group of field-hands resting under a large oak tree. In the background, hundreds of haystacks extend towards a distant vanishing point. While in the foreground, several swans are swimming on a moss-covered pond.

The painting is housed within a highly decorative 19th-century Rococo revival frame with swept pierced corners and foliate ornamentation.

Conservation & History

We care profoundly about our role as custodians and every piece in the collection has been assessed by our conservator. When required, we undertake professional restoration carefully using reversible techniques and adopt a light touch to retain the aged charm of each work. We also restore frames rather than replace them as many are original and selected by the artists themselves.
