    Description

    Cornelis Hendricksz. Vroom (Dutch, 1500-1600)
    A wooded river landscape with a horseman, circa 1623-4
    Oil on cradled panel
    13 x 19-1/2 inches (33.0 x 49.5 cm)

    PROVENANCE:
    Anonymous sale, Heberle, Cologne, November 5-6, 1901, lot 65 (illustrated as Jacob Salomonsz van Ruysdael);
    Private collection, acquired from the above.

    LITERATURE:
    G. Keyes, Cornelis Vroom: Marine and Landscape Artist, 1975, Vol. I, pp. 72 & 74; Vol. II, p. 178, fig. 35, illustrated.

    In his 1975 publication, George Keyes noted that the present work, which he knew through a photograph, "bears all the hallmarks of Vroom's style in the early to mid 1620's and should be considered a major addition to his oeuvre," citing comparisons with the treatment of trees, shrubs and distant hills in works in Oslo and the van Marken collection (P 31 and 20 in his publication). He added: "Features of this composition could have inspired the 1626 London Riverscape [National Gallery, London] thereby supporting an earlier dating--about 1623-24."



    Condition Report*: Fine craquelure commensurate with age. Recent revarnishing. Inpaint along upper register of the panel filling in horizontal wood grain as well as other apparent losses. Painting was selectively cleaned in the sky leaving older varnish on the landscape. Inpaint along far edges to address frame abrasion.  Framed Dimensions 18.5 X 25.25 X 2 Inches
