Italian Landscape with a Draughtsman, Jan Both, c. 1650 - c. 1652

oil on canvas, h 187cm × w 240cm. More details

Our eye meanders happily through this large painting. If we follow the road and cross the bridge, we see in the distance a well-to-do traveller in a sedan chair. Mules carry his baggage. By placing a draughtsman near the bridge over the waterfall, Both would have us believe that he painted this scene from life, but in reality it was painted at home in his Dutch studio.
