17th Century Dutch School

Dutch Artists

This series of thirteen townscapes are images of shipping ports, market places, hotels, busy neighborhoods, historical buildings, castles, and cathedrals all surrounded by the element of water. They show the interplay and the importance of the waterways to the towns and their dependance on each other. Individual prints are titled in Dutch at the top center and were done c. 1660-1690.


This is an unsigned very early oil on oak panel of some traveling itinerant musicians.  The painting itself measures 11 3/4X10 inches.  Dutch School, 17th century.  Very much in the style and subject   of Adriaen Van Ostade.
