Alexander Keirincx & Cornelis van Poelenburch Wooded Landscape with Figures
In an idyllic landscape with trees, a stream and a pool, some bathers have gathered by a small waterfall. The landscape is by the Antwerp painter Alexander Keirincx, a pupil of the landscape painter Abraham Govaerts. Keirincx did not paint the figures in the landscape himself. They were painted by Cornelis van Poelenburch.
Shortly after its completion, this painting came into the possession of Prince Frederik Hendrik and Amalia van Solms, who hung it in one of the stadholder’s palaces.
