Naarden 1600/3 - 1670 Haarlem

Peasants harvesting


signed and dated lower right: S. V. RUIESDAEL/ 1627 

oil on panel

panel: 6 1/2 by 12 1/2 in.; 16.5 by 31.8 cm.

framed: 12 by 17 1/4 in.; 30.5 by 43.9 cm.

Condition report

The panel is slightly convex and has been cut down on at least two edges and shaved down on the reverse, but it is stable. The landscape image reads well beneath an older varnish with details like the signature retained. Under UV inspection, the varnish appears milky and opaque, with only small lines of frame abrasion visible that are also visible to the naked eye. The varnish may obscure older retouching. Offered in a decoratively carved giltwood frame with glazing.

Catalogue note

This small scene of peasants harvesting, called "Haytime" in the Indianapolis show and in family lore, is a fragment of a larger panel, which is evident due to the shape and orientation of the composition.
