Landscape with Cattle Driver and Shepherd  1780

by Jacob van Strij

Few painters were as popular at the end of the 18th century as the 17th-century landscapist Aelbert Cuyp. The English aristocracy in particular collected his work. Jacob van Strij, who, like Cuyp, came from Dordrecht, based his landscapes on those of his famous predecessor, but he used more colourful accents and infused the sky with a lovely golden glow.
