Jacques D' Arthois (Brussels 1613 - 1686) was a landscape painter and tapestry designer who mainly worked on wooded landscapes, leaving figures and characters over to the hand of other painters. He was in fact -and one of the few- sources of influence for landscape painters in the late 17th century.
In terms of style d'Arthois, our work is a typical painting for him. Detailed fluttering leaves and trees, a color palet that is soft and vibrant at the same time, leaving no misjudgement on the mastery of his metier. The figures on the other hand are not overly detailed which might lead us to conclude that one of his pupils painted them (perhaps even his son Jan Baptist).
