signed and dated upper left: i. offermans/ 1672 oil on panel PROVENANCEAnonymous Sale, Paris, Drûot, 14 March 1988, lot 21. CATALOGUE NOTEThe artist, son of a silversmith and a pupil of the Italianate painter Adriaen van Eemont, is otherwise known only as a landscape painter. This picture is strongly reminiscent of the hunting trompe l'oeils of the brothers Johannes and Anthony Leemans. Anthony Leemans appears as a witness to a document in Dordrecht in 1671, the year before this picture was painted, but since such pictures were by then fairly well dispersed, and the tradition of trompe l'oeil painting in Dordrecht established by Samuel van Hoogstraeten still thrived, it comes as no great surprise that an artist such as Offermans turned his hand to such a production.
