Moses van Uyttenbroeck: 'Landscape with Mythological Figures'
It is not clear whether Uyttenbroeck intended to represent a particular mythological subject here. The scene has been described as the 'Nurture of Bacchus', but it could equally well be a rustic love scene such as that of Daphnis and Chloë.

The artist is not known to have visited Italy. The classical buildings and the two columns on the right could be based on one of the many engraved views of Roman monuments available in the Netherlands.
