Landscape with Figures of Ladies and Horsemen

dell’Abate Niccolò
(Modena 1512 - Fontainebleau 1671)

It is quite likely that the painting became part of the Collection in 1608, when – commissioned by Cardinal Scipione Borghese – Enzo Bentivoglio had a large number of paintings sent from Ferrara.
In this fabulous scenario, where a deer hunt is coming to an end, we see the blending of a courtly, narrative atmosphere with numerous elements of Flemish art, which was highly esteemed at the Estense Castle in Ferrara, from whose ‘Camerini’ this extraordinary landscape in all likelihood came.
