Object Name Painting
Description This small landscape painting by Abel Grimmer entitled "Winter 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. 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).
