Abraham Govaerts
Wooded Landscape with Hunters and Fortune Teller

1612 Non visitabile

On a sandy path, some walkers are standing chatting in the sunshine. The path forks to the right into the dark oak forest and to the left towards some houses. Through the silhouette of the fallen tree and the light in the distance, Govaerts created a lot of depth in the landscape.

The Antwerp painter Abraham Govaerts specialised in landscapes and was probably a pupil of Jan Brueghel I.
