HORSES FROLICKING IN AN ITALIANATE LANDSCAPE
oil on canvas

Pieter van Bloemen (1657–1720), also known as 'Standaart', was born in Antwerp and trained there by the battle painter Simon Johannes van Douw ('circa' 1630 – after 1677). He had a large output and was particularly known for his representations of grouped 'still-life' animals, especially horses. This great observation after nature is also witnessed in his many drawings that represent mainly animal studies from life.
