Palamedes Palamedesz. (called Stevaerts) - Cavalry Skirmish near Water
The dramatic events of the Thirty Years War guaranteed the Dutch battle painters a permanent interest of the public. The prematurely deceased Palamedes I Palamedesz. also specialised in battle scenes in Delft. He abandoned the earlier didactic descriptiveness of this genre and incorporated the battle clashes in a wider landscape view. The viewer is drawn into the action, the battle turmoil is chaotic and impresses as very vivid.
