Pieter Anthoniesz Barbiers (1717-1780)

A Woodland Landscape with Three Travellers

Amsterdam, about 1760

Watercolour, pen and ink on paper, with pen and ink borders

438 x 534 mm

 

The flourishing tradition of 18th-century Dutch landscape watercolours is little known in Britain. This fine woodland scene, which is comparable in many ways to the work of better-known British artists of the date such as Paul Sandby, is one of a handful in public collections in this country. The work retains its original border.

Barbiers came from a large family of artists. He was a painter, draughtsman and engraver, as well as a wallpaper manufacturer and a designer for the theatre.
