Flemish School 17th century
Tobias and the Angel in a Wooded Landscape The Penitent Mary Magdalene in a River Landscape
Oil on copper. Each 50 x 65.4 cm.
The composition, landscape and choice of animals in this pair of works are all typical of the Antwerp school of the early 17th century, which was heavily influenced by the work of Jan Brueghel the Younger. As with many paintings of this time, the present works could also have been a collaborative effort between two artists, with one responsible for the landscape and another the figures. The use of a copper panel is also typical of this city.
