Arent ARENTZ known as Arent CABEL (1585/86 - around 1635) Couple of fishermen preparing their net Oak panel, one board, not parqueted On the back, an old handwritten label and a painted horse. Old restorations. 36 x 63,7 cm Arent Arentz is the grandson of Pieter Aertsen. Close to Hendrik Avercamp by the choice of his subjects, he differs from him the simplicity of his compositions, his clear and luminous palette served by a foreground always always animated by large figures of peasants at work or contemplative. His rectilinear and low horizons horizons make him one of the initiators of the Dutch national landscape of the 17th century, in reaction to the imaginative tendencies of the sylvan or mountainous landscape inspired by the Flemish (Coninxloo, Momper, Bril).
