Halt of Travellers

An early work comparable with the Landscape with a Rider resting in the Museum der Bildenden Knste, Leipzig, of 1646. F. Duparc suggests a date of c. 1647-49, which seems likely given the signature style of 'PHILS W' (PHILS in monogram), which came into use in 1646. The use of a diagonal skyline and the coarse figures is typical of Wouwerman's output during a period when he was heavily under the influence of Pieter van Laer.
