Frans de Momper - Winter Landscape
Frans de Momper
Oil on panel (parquetted). 39 x 67 cm.
Signed on the house in the right foreground: f. d. momper.
The paintings by Frans de Momper are characterised by the expansive and generous composition of the landscapes as well as a striking rendering of the leafless trees in the foreground. The artist especially favoured winter landscapes, which he painted using almost the entire spectrum of brown tones available to him.
