A Landscape with a Ruined Archway
Jan Wijnants

Wijnants lived and worked in Haarlem, and his landscapes are based on the area around the town. Many buildings had been destroyed by the Spanish at the time of the siege of Haarlem and survived as picturesque ruins. The figures and animals are probably by Wijnant's collaborator, Adriaen van de Velde.
