VENNE, Adriaen Pietersz. van de
(b. 1589, Delft, d. 1662, The Hague)

Winter Landscape with Elegant Figures

before 1614
Oil on panel, diameter 22 cm
Private collection

This panel is one of Van de Venne's earliest works, it likely precedes his first dated paintings, completed in 1614-15. The larger, elegantly dressed figures in the foreground were possibly painted by another contemporary hand.
