KONINCK, Philips
(b. 1619, Amsterdam, d. 1688, Amsterdam)

Panoramic Landscape with a Country Estate

Oil on canvas, 143 x 173 cm
Metropolitan Museum of Art, New York

This painting is one of Koninck's first large-scale landscapes. The arbitrarily high vantage point allows the viewer to survey not only extensive farmland but also three or more different rivers and four cities or towns.
