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. Just like the previous lot, the present lot shows the clarity and symmetry Allegrain created in his compositions. The undulated path invites the viewer to navigate through untamed greenery and a gushing waterfall, until reaching the structured classical architecture in the background.
