(b. ca. 1589 Napoli, d. 1629, Roma)

River Landscape

Oil on canvas, 93 x 120 cm
Galleria Palatina (Palazzo Pitti), Florence

The prolific Neapolitan painter produced many paintings at the court of Cosimo II de' Medici between 1617 and 1621, especially landscapes and genre scenes. This peaceful scene incorporates the latter into the former. A cosmic harmony is present in the echoing shapes of the central tree and the cumulus cloud above.
