Landscape with the Rest on the Flight into Egypt

Oil on copper, 21 x 30 cm
Private collection

The subject of this little copper panel depicting the rest on the flight into Egypt, is merely a pretext for painting a wide landscape with forests and river, which displays the preromantic accents characteristic of the influence of the Frankenthal School.

The painting formerly was attributed to Paul Bril.
