Catalogue Note

This belongs to Keirinckx's early period.  It belongs firmly to the Flemish Mannerist landscape tradition, and probably pre-dates his move from Antwerp to Utrecht in circa 1626-8.  Whether or not it dates from before or after his move, it shows no hint of the considerable change his style was to make under the influence of Poelenburch and the tonal landscapists.

Hasselgren (see Literature) records that Hofstede de Groot thought it painted in the manner of Peter Snayers or Jan Wildens.
