Giovanni Battista VIOLA , 1576 - 1622

Landscape with a Hunting Party


Date: early 17th century
Medium: Oil on canvas
Dimensions: 96.6 x 135.3 cm
Acquisition credit: Holwell Carr Bequest, 1831

No literary source has been associated with the hunt depicted.

The painting is closely based on a work attributed to Domenichino in a private collection. It is considerably larger, however, and the handling is quite different.

With its pendant 'Landscape with a River and Boats', the painting entered the Gallery as a work by Annibale Carracci; the two pictures were subsequently thought to be by separate hands but both are now attributed to Giovanni Battista Viola. The pictures are perhaps identifiable with a pair of overdoors recorded in the Giustiniani collection in Rome in 1638.
