Pieter Gysels, also known as Peeter Gijsels, was a renowned Flemish painter who lived from 1621 to 1690/91. He was known for his landscapes, which often depicted idyllic scenes from nature, and his works are highly sought after by Old Master collectors. We are proud to offer a newly discovered pair of landscapes attributed to him; this one called "Wooded Landscape With an Elegant Company".
This stunning painting captures the beauty of a serene landscape, with tall trees and rolling hills stretching out to the horizon. In the foreground, we see a group of five elegantly dressed figures, both standing and seated the ground. One man is gesturing, perhaps presenting a fishbone to one of the ladies in a sign of hospitality. Beside them, another man is fishing in a small stream, with his line cast into the water. A dog runs through the scene, adding a sense of movement and energy to the composition. And in the background, we see a man crossing a stone bridge, and several small houses dotting the landscape.
Gysels' attention to detail is remarkable, and his use of color and composition creates a sense of depth and atmosphere that draws the viewer into the scene. The cottages in the background are rendered with fine detailing, and the use of big-leafed plants in the foreground adds a sense of texture and dimensionality to the painting. The detailing of the cottages, the colors, the use of big-leafed plants in the foreground, and the figure types are typical of his signature style.
"Wooded Landscape With an Elegant Company" is painted on copper, which gives the painting a unique luminosity and depth. The use of copper as a support for paintings was popular in the seventeenth century.
We also have one more painting called " A Wooded Landscape With Riders". These two paintings have been together since they were painted. We highly recommend purchasing these two paintings as a set.
