Fantastic Landscape

Brill Paul
(Antwerp 1554 - Rome 1626)

Attributed with reservations to Paul Brill, the painting portrays a nocturnal landscape with a small river port on the left in the background. In any case, the dramatic light-shadow contrast evident in the tree in the middle points to the Flemish landscape painters active in Rome together with Brill, whom Scipione Borghese must have admired.
