Marten Ryckaert
ANTWERP 1587 - 1631
LANDSCAPE IN THE RHINE VALLEY

Catalogue Note

This Idyllic coastal landscape reveals the influence of Paul Bril on Ryckaert's style, whose work he would have seen in Rome during his sojourn in Italy between 1605 and 1610.  The present painting, with its gentle diagonals, atmospheric perspective and subtle rendition of light, echoes Bril's work from his late Roman period when the artist had incorporated the classicizing elements of the landscapes of Annibale Carracci and Adam Elsheimer.  The chalky, hazy blues and brilliant emerald greens that dominate this composition are typical of Ryckaert's palette.
