Figures in a Wooded Landscape

attributed to Pieter Bout (1658-1719) - Sold

Figures in a Wooded Landscape

An extremely fine late 17th century Flemish oil painting on canvas depicting several figures with a horse and dogs standing before an ornate water fountain in a wooded landscape with a lake beyond and a hilltop castle in the distance.  The painting is attributed to Pieter Bout a Flemish artist who specialised in this type of landscape painting and often collaborated with Adrien Frans Boudewyns (1644-1711).  The composition the present lot is typical of the artist's work which usually features an Italian looking scene with a castle or fortified village, with hills in the distance, a blue and white cloudy sky above, trees either side and a track in the foreground with a variety of travellers.  The figures always have a wide variety. Some are rich people and some are peasants. There are usually horses, cows and dogs.  A wonderful old master oil painting.
