Haarlem School, Mid-17th Century Landscape with Figures and Livestock Along a Path

 
Auction: American & European Works of Art - 3390B Location: Marlborough Date / Time: May 31, 2020 12:00PM

Description:

Haarlem School, Mid-17th Century

Landscape with Figures and Livestock Along a Path
Unsigned, with three wax collector's stamps on the reverse.
Oil on panel, 15 3/4 x 21 3/8 in. (40.0 x 54.5 cm), framed.
Condition: Broadly brushed retouch to sky, fine craquelure, areas of thin pigment, minor surface grime.

N.B. The landscape at hand was originally attributed to Aert van der Neer (Dutch, 1603-1677). However, when images were recently reviewed by the RKD (Netherlands Institute for Art History), the work was found to have more similarities to paintings from the Haarlem School, more in the spirit of works by Guillam Dubois (Dutch, c. 1610-1680) but not by his hand.
Estimate $2,000-3,000

The work might benefit from a cleaning. The frame measures 23 1/2 x 29 1/2 x 2 1/2 in.
