PROPERTY FROM A EUROPEAN PRIVATE COLLECTION
Private Collection, Milan.
Savery was attracted to this subject: he painted no less than 25 treatments of it between 1617 and 1628. By 1616 Savery was in Amsterdam, following some peripatetic years after his employment in Rudolfine Prague came to an end. He finally settled in Utrecht in 1619, the year after he painted this work.
