Artist Attributed to school of Arthois, Jacques d` (Flemish painter, 1613-1686)
Date Earliest possibly about 1630
Date Latest possibly about 1700
Description Jacques d'Arthois's success as a designer of tapestry cartoons in Brussels, and as painter for the French court, explains the endless repetition of the formula that he created by his pupils and followers in the seventeenth century. This river scene with figures belongs to that tradition which was continued by a later generation, whose landscapes were composed following a similar scheme. Clusters of trees appear on one side of the foreground and a sense of depth is created by means of a stream that marks a diagonal line towards the background.
