Road by the Edge of a Lake

Jan Both was one of the most influential and important of the Dutch Italianate painters, based in Utrecht. He travelled to Italy between 1638 and 1641; this picture was probably painted when he was in Rome. The broad characterisation and handling of the figures seems to contrast with the delicate detail in the landscape, suggesting that the figures were painted by someone else.
