Catalogue Note

Jan Wijnants was a prominent landscape painter, active primarily in Haarlem in the second half of the seventeenth century. His pictures appealed to 18th century English collectors’ taste for Dutch pastoral landscapes. The stylized tree, its spindly branches reaching into the clouds of the luminous afternoon sky, and thatched cottage in this composition are characteristic of Wijants' work.

It has been suggested that the figures are by Adriaen van de Velde or Paulus Potter.1
