Catalogue Note

While close in its conception to the work of his Dordrecht predecessor, Aelbert Cuyp, whose work Van Strij liked to imitate, this river landscape differs remarkably from Cuyp's colouring. Van Strij's composition is permeated with greenish tones rather than the yellow-brown hues that dominate Cuyp's landscapes. In general, Van Strij preferred simpler and clearer arranged compositions, executed in a more detailed manner. See, for example, the minutely rendered hairs of the goat and cow hides. Another almost identical version of this work, but on canvas, was sold London, Christie's, 4 July 1996, lot 179, as Circle of Jacob van Strij.
