Paul Bril (Flemish, 1553/54–1626)

About this artwork

Paul Bril was one of the most prominent and financially successful Northern European landscape painters in Rome between 1590 and 1626. Here he incorporated the classical architecture, rolling hills, and vast expanses of sky found in earlier Italian landscapes into the forest views typical of Flanders in the late 1500s. Such classically inflected landscapes would become popular with collectors of Flemish art across Europe by the mid-17th century.
