Katalognotizen

This painting most probably dates from the second half of the 1650s, when Wouwerman seems to have made a particularly successful speciality of hunting subjects set in vaguely italianate spaces and painted with bright local colours. Such pieces were amongst his most prized subjects, particularly among French and English collectors of the the late 18th and 19th centuries.
