A Shepherdess, Paulus Moreelse, 1630

A Shepherdess, Paulus Moreelse, 1630

olieverf op doek, h 81.5cm × w 64.5cm. More details

This alluring shepherdess would never have been engaged in the tending of sheep. She inhabits an idealized pastoral paradise called Arcadia. Dutch 17th-century poetry repeatedly sang the praises of this imaginary land. The shepherdesses there were invariably seductive and licentious. Moreelse made many attractive paintings of this subject matter.
