Before Segers’ signature was discovered on this painting, it was attributed to the Flemish artist Joos de Momper. The imaginary landscape, seen from a high vantage point, and the colours – brown for the foreground, yellow for the middle ground, and a bluegreen for the background – do indeed look ‘Flemish’. Rembrandt greatly admired the work of Segers and even owned eight paintings by him.
