Catalogue Note

A pupil of the Antwerp artist Joos de Momper (1564–1635), Louis de Caullery specialised in depictions of courtly gatherings set variously in fantastical architectural and garden surroundings. He also painted more topographically accurate scenes, notably of Venice, where he is presumed to have travelled, and the influence of which is evident in the inclusion of the gondolas in the present painting.
