Two Horsemen at a Gipsy Encampment

Formerly catalogued as 'Ascribed to Philips Wouwerman', this painting is now more securely attributed to him.

Philips Wouwerman was a native of Haarlem, and painted mainly landscapes, often with battles or hunts. He was trained by his father and Frans Hals (about 1580? - 1666). Wouwerman was a prolific artist and enjoyed great success not only in his own time but also in the 19th century.
