This antique Dutch oil on canvas depicts a bustling harbor scene with various boats arriving with goods or being moored. In the water are two white swans leisurely swimming around all of the activity. On the shoreline, there is a horse drawn carriage which is being escorted by two horsemen, one to the front and one to the rear of the carriage. Two dogs are playing behind them. In the background are forested areas, pasture lands with animals grazing, parks, churches, buildings and windmills. The sky has large, white, fluffy cumulus clouds hovering overhead. The painting is signed indistinctly in the lower right hand corner. It is likely from the low countries region of Europe, and it is in the manner of William or Jan Dalens (17th Century).
This wonderful oil on canvas painting will be a wonderful focal point in any room..
CONDITION: Very good. Relined at some point in its history, touch-ups, some age craquelure, and minor losses to paint on outside periphery.
