NEYTS, Gillis
(b. 1623, Gent, d. 1687, Antwerpen)

River Landscape with a Town in the Distance

Watercolour over pen and brown ink, 169 x 224 mm
Private collection

With its miniature style the work of Gillis Neyts conforms to the type of landscape conceived by Jan Brueghel the Elder. He is known more for his many drawings of landscapes and town views, executed in a fine pointillist technique, than for his paintings.
