Catalogue Note

Pieter Pietersz. Barbiers, who painted several ensembles of wall decorations, such as for a room at the Haarlem City Archives, was mainly active as a painter and draughtsman of landscapes. He predominantly painted views of Drenthe, Brabant and surroundings of Haarlem. Many drawings and watercolours, landscapes as well as studies for birds and animals have been preserved. Barbiers is often called the 'Drenthse Hobbema', because his motifs and compositions are greatly indebted to his well-known predecessor. Like Meindert Hobbema, Barbiers painted wooded scenes with houses, sandy or muddy roads with additional staffage. Even more reminiscent of Hobbema are the finely painted imposing trees with their compact contours, as well as the type of landscape: this woodland scene shows a rather dense and closed off forest to the left, and an extensive, hilly view on the right, which draws the viewer into the composition.
