TOURNAI 1676 - 1765 ANTWERP
A RIVER LANDSCAPE WITH FIGURES BY A FERRY, OTHER FIGURES SEATED ON THE BANKS OF THE RIVER, WITH THEIR CATTLE IN THE WATER

Provenance

Catalogue Note

In his early years Théobald Michau was apprenticed to the landscape painter Lucas Achtschellinck (1626-1699) in Brussels. He was made Master of the Guild there in 1698 and was elected a member of the Guild of Antwerp in 1710. Although painted more than a century later, his works still show a conspicious debt to the designs of Jan Brueghel the Elder (1568-1625) and Jan Breughel the Younger (1601-1678), whose river landscape compositions, evidently inspired the present work.
