Pastoral Landscape

Oil on oak panel, 26 x 37 cm
Private collection

This is a pastoral landscape with herdsmen before Roman ruins, two fishermen and their catch in the foreground. Like most of Ryckaert's work, this picture is strongly influenced by Paulus Bril, via the latter's prints, and those paintings which reached Antwerp from Rome.
