Simon van der Does


Oil on canvas, 45.5 x 55 cm

The iconography of the Italianized landscape with the scene of the Exodus of the Israelites from Egypt (Old Testament, Genesis 12:1-7) testifies to the influence of the outstanding Dutch Italian painter Karel Dujardin on the master.
The exquisite manneristic design and subtly harmonized brownish-blue color formed in the landscape an original fusion of traditions from the two largest centers of European painting of the 17th century - Italy and Holland.

Dutch Baroque. Italianism.
