  • PROVENANCE
    With Dowdeswell and Dowdeswell, London
    The Stoop Collection, Byfleet, Hampshire, and thence by family descent to the present owner

    The composition follows the right hand section of a signed painting by Jan Fyt in the Musées royaux des Beaux-Arts de Belgique (on canvas, 118 x 197 cm., inv. no. 2641). The present composition, however, differs somewhat, particularly in the sky and in the addition of the large palace in the distant landscape.
