With its staggered groups of trees that line a track and resemble stage-sets arranged one behind another, the viewer’s eye is guided into the distance. This work, together with its counterpart ‘Landscape with Stag Hunt’, exemplifies Flemish landscape painting that had evolved from the vast panoramic landscapes of the sixteenth century. The typically high horizon was relinquished and replaced by a more natural prolongation into the distance. Picturesque groups of trees lend the landscape a seemingly Arcadian character.
