Gysbrechts Leytens - Winter Landscape with the Woodcutters
Gysbrechts Leytens specialised in painting winter landscapes. The Prague composition, like his other works with the subject of winter countryside, shows massive ancient trees with dense branches in the foreground of the left part of the painting. Beyond them, a view is revealed of the landscape with a frozen stream and several rustic houses. The dead trees against the grey, cloudy sky underline the gloomy atmosphere of the unpleasant, cold day.
