Description This wooded landscape, peopled with figures and various animals, is close in type to works produced by Jan Both. This Dutch artist, who worked in the first half of the seventeenth century, often based his compositions on imaginary and actual views of the Roman Campagna. His brother Andries often collaborated with him and has been attributed with painting the small figures here. However, the quality of this painting suggests that it is a pastiche by a follower of Jan Both, and it is likely to date from the late seventeenth century.
