Catalogue Note

Etienne Allegrain, a Parisian painter, joined the Académie Royal in 1677. His imaginary panoramic landscape paintings, most of which were painted between 1690-95, appear to be inspired by Poisson's mythological landscapes. The present lot shows the lucid symmetry Allegrain created in his painting, as the undulated path draws the viewer in, past the idyllic body of water and classical architecture, until reaching the summit of the untamed wilderness in the background.
