Jacob van Strij
Dordrecht 1756 - 1815
DORDRECHT 1756 - 1815
A WINTER LANDSCAPE WITH A MAN AND A CHILD WALKING THROUGH THE SNOW NEAR A FARMHOUSE

Provenance

Anonymous sale, Bremen, Bolland & Marotz, 6 December 1997, lot 569a.

Catalogue Note

Jacob van Strij spent much of his life in the pursuit of imitating his fellow townsman Aelbert Cuyp and made numerous copies of his work (see also lot 97 in this sale). Indeed, several of his works were, until only relatively recently, considered to be by the hand of this 17th Century master. Van Strij's style however, characterised by a thick application of paint and crisp, striking lighting effects, is altogether more obvious than that of Cuyp. The broad handling of this picture is reminiscent of watercolour winter landscapes by Jacob and Abraham van Strij.
