KEUNINCK, Kerstiaen de
(b. 1560, Kortrijk, d. 1632/3, Antwerpen)

Jacob's Dream

Oil on panel, 47 x 65 cm
Private collection

This intricately wrought scene combines the elements of the imaginative landscapes, for which Kerstiaen de Keuninck was best known, with a discernible Flemish realism. The fantastical landscape with its winding paths and striking curvature, is a backdrop for the story of Jacob's dream.
