Landscape with a Classical Temple and a Hunter
(Antwerp 1554 - Rome 1626)
The painting portrays a subject that appears a number of times in the work of Brill and the other Flemish painters in Rome at the end of the 16th century: the Temple of the Sibyl in Tivoli. The Belgian artist’s experiments gave birth to several types of landscape, with classical ruins and hunting scenes, which would be executed throughout the 17th century.
The painting returns to a previous composition executed around 1600, a period in which the artist carefully painted archaeological places.
