BREENBERGH, Bartholomeus
(b. 1598/1600, Deventer, d. 1657, Amsterdam)

Landscape with the Finding of Moses

Oil on copper, 18,5 x 25 cm
Hallwylska Muséet, Stockholm

This small, signed and dated painting is Breenbergh's first known work and differs significantly from his later production. In the early 1620s, it must have looked rather archaic, relying on early works by Bril for the rocky formation and the temple at Tivoli on the right.
