17th Century Flemish Village Scene Oil on Copper Painting
17th century Flemish School oil on copper painting depicting a village scenery crowded with a multitude of figures in the foreground with classical architecture and landscape in the background. On the left side, on a sort of stage with wings, in front of a portal decorated with bas-reliefs, we find a dentist working with a patient, a proclaiming gentleman and masked figures.
Under the stage a multitude of characters, as we often find in Old Master Flemish paintings, street vendors, walking gentlewomen, carriages with horses, dogs and a cart pulled by a horse enrich the scenery.
The painting is of Flemish origin and is in good condition consistent with the age and is set in a moderncarved and ebonised guilloché frame.
