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

Mountainous Landscape with Travellers

Oil on panel, 55 x 99 cm
Private collection

This intricately wrought and almost theatrical scene combines the elements of the imaginative landscapes, for which Kerstiaen de Keuninck was best known, with a discernible Flemish realism. In de Keuninck's paintings, the fantastic and overwhelming landscape appears to be the main objective.
