Christoffel van den Berghe, Winter Landscape, c. 1615 - 1620

People glide over the ice of a frozen waterway. They are sledging and playing an old game called ‘kolf’. The ice seems to stretch out endlessly into the distance. This sense of depth is reinforced by the bare silhouette of the tree in the foreground.

Christoffel van den Berghe painted this small landscape with great precision on a copper plate; a very smooth base ideally suited to painting fine detail.
