Nicolaes Berchem: 'A Man and a Youth ploughing with Oxen'

Explore the paintings

This landscape was probably painted at about the same time as a very similar work by Berchem that is dated 1653 and is now in Vienna (Akademie). The dating is also supported by the form of the signature, which Berchem used until the mid-1650s but rarely later.

This painting was owned by the French artist François Boucher in the mid-18th century. There are several paintings by Boucher in the National Gallery Collection.
