Arcadian Landscape with Fishermen  1700

by Jan van Huysum

These two scenes are painted on copper, a support that allowed Van Huysum to achieve a remarkably smooth and shiny result. Depicted are Arcadian, or idyllic, landscapes, with temples and figures from Classical antiquity. They are small gems intended for an art lover’s collection.
