Fantastic Landscape

Brill Paul
(Antwerp 1554 - Rome 1626)


In this broad landscape with great light-shadow contrast in the foliage, the representation of the marsh vegetation and split trunks in the foreground is remarkable. These aspects point directly to the Flemish painters of the Frankenthal School and the work of Gillis Van Coninxloo. These elements also recur in Brill, but more moderately. For these stylistic reasons, the attribution to the Flemish painter is not certain, as it could be by one of his assistants.
