Catalogue Note

The nephew of Joos de Momper II, Frans de Momper became a master of the Antwerp Guild of St. Luke in 1629.  As exemplified by the present work his painting style owes much to that of his uncle; compare, for example, with Joos de Momper's Mountain landscape with riders in Darmstadt, Hessisches Landesmuseum, inv. no. GK 171 (see K. Ertz, under Literature, p. 25, plate 7).  Later on in his life he experimented more, painting many monochrome landscapes in the manner of Jan van Goyen and, furthermore, several works that hark back to the so-called 'tonal phase' of landscape painting begun in Haarlem by Van Goyen, Salomon van Ruysdael and Pieter Molyn, among others, towards the end of the 1620s.
