Horsemen Resting in a Landscape

Aelbert Cuyp1660

Dordrechts Museum
Dordrecht, Netherlands

This Dutch landscape with hills like those Cuyp would have seen in Cleves has a southern air about it. Complete with a ‘saffron-tinted evening’ – the golden glow – it proved the ideal setting for an aristocratic hunting piece. A successful formula that appealed to the Dordrecht upper classes. And to the British nobility a century later.
