Gerard David
Wooded Landscape

c. 1510-1515 Visible à Salle 6

In these two forest scenes by Gerard David, all the attention is focused on nature. There is no story and there are no people involved. Yet they are not independent landscapes, but the wings of an altarpiece. They depict a biblical text announcing the coming of the Messiah. This is what the congregation would have seen when the altarpiece was closed. The inside would have depicted the birth of Christ.
