Original oil on painting.

Excellent conditions. 

Beautiful ancient painting depicting a large bucolic scene with shepherds and herds in the ruins. The scene, surrounded by a large landscape, is crowded with many figures of animals and shepherds. The details, as in any self-respecting Flemish painting, are extremely accurate. The colors are vivid and lively and the landscape is characterized by the typical architectural Capriccio. Capriccio in painting, is a kind of genre that includes architectural elements (or ruins, as in this case) from different areas and which was widely used in this period (especially by the European painters that lived in Italy between the end of the XVII and the beginning of the XVIII). 

This work has been realized by Pieter Van Bredael (Antwerp, 1629 - Antwerp, 1719) was a Flemish painter. Van Bredael entered the Guild of San Luca in 1650. His masters are unknown, but he imitated the works of Jan Brueghel the Elder in the creation of landscapes with small figures. He worked extensively in Spain, where he was widely appreciated. From the typology of reproduced landscapes it can be deduced that he may have visited Italy. His pupils has been Hendrik Frans van Lint, Ferdinandus Hofmans, and his son Joris van Bredael.
