Jan Baptist Wolfaerts

(Antwerp 1625-after 1658)
Shepherds and their flock in a vast landscape,
oil on canvas, 66 x 63 cm, framed

We are grateful to Dr Pieter Bisboer for identifying this painting as Wolfaerts’ work.
The present painting is one of the rare Italianate landscapes painted by Wolfaerts in the late 1650s. Some of them were formerly attributed to Nicolaes Berchem. Berchem’s and Salomon Rombout’s works served as precedents for Wolfaerts throughout his life. The present painting, depicting a pastoral scene in an Italian landscape setting, clearly shows the artist’s debt towards Berchem.
