DELANE, Solomon
(b. ca. 1727, Dublin, d. 1812, Dublin)

Landscape with the Flight into Egypt

c. 1772
Oil on copper, 48 x 61 cm
Private collection

The present classical landscape shows the cool silvery tonality which is the hallmark of the painter's style. It is one of two known paintings by the artist which are on copper, and may be dated to about 1772 when Delane was sharing accommodation in Rome with his fellow artist Hugh Primrose Dean.
