Description

Riverscape, 17th C.


Oil on panel, 18 1/4 x 21 3/4 x 2 7/8"

Oil on panel frame which was  either partially or fully removed. This could suggest that the frame was repurposed. Barely discernable are numbers and letters, including a typewritten “RGNE” on the torn label at left. The identification of the numbers across the top is also unknown. A faint, handwritten inscription down the right edge reads “Bakhuysen,” referring to the painter of this work. The painting is an oil on panel, and at a later date was reinforced by a method known as cradling, of which there is another example on view in this exhibition.
