The Return from Hawking

Another work from the early 1660s, this painting sees Wouwerman at his most elegant: works such as this were very influential for eighteenth-century French painters like Jean-Antoine Watteau and François Boucher. In many ways the French Rococo was a continuation of the Dutch Italianate style.
