Cows at Pasture, signed lower right "A J Wyngaerde f."
Item #  506XUF27X

Anthonie Jacobus Van Wyngaerdt (also frequently spelled “Wyngaerde”) was born in Rotterdam on June 27th of 1808. He studied under landscape painter Jacob Meijer and produced extensive landscapes with figures and animals. He worked from Gouda in 1849 and in Haarlem from 1852 until his death in 1887.

An exceedingly fine work of crisp realism with touches of impressionism, this vibrant and striking scene captures a lush pasture against a forested backdrop with a small brook under the wispy clouds of summer as cattle rest and relax in the cool afternoon.  Typical of Wyngaerde's scenes, the painting compresses a large moment with an extensive collection of animals and vivid foliage into a small mahogany panel.  His works only rarely come on the market and are always quite exceptional.  The present example was recently conserved and is in flawless condition other than the frame, which is naturally a replacement.  It is a magnificent selection for the serious collector of Dutch School works from the 19th Century.
