STRIJ, Jacob van
(b. 1756, Dordrecht, d. 1815, Dordrecht)

Landscape with Cattle

Oil on wood, 80 x 107 cm
Metropolitan Museum of Art, New York

Due to a false inscription on lower right, until the early 1980s this painting was considered to be by Aelbert Cuyp. Comparisons with signed works by Jacob van Strijs led to the attribution to him. However, the composition contains several borrowings from Cuyp's paintings.
