Artist Grimmer, Abel
Title Autumn Scene
Date c. 1607 AD
Object Name Painting
Description This small landscape painting by Abel Grimmer titled "Autumn Scene," is characteristic of his style. He specialized in small landscapes, often roundels that are dotted with figures passing through villages or open countryside. Many of these scenes also contain biblical themes. Grimmer often created his paintings in series, usually the seasons or months of the year. The I. R. R. study of this painting confirmed that it could be part of such series. (See notes).
Grimmer was largely a derivative artist who based many of his works on prints after compositions by Pieter Bruegel the Elder (c. 1525-1569) and Hans Bol (1534-1593).
