Conservation & Restoration of Fine Paintings


Frans Wouters(1612-1659), Flemish School
Satyr discovering a nymph in a clearing
oil on panel, 36.2 x 40.6 cms
in an elaborate gilt swept frame
18,500.00 GBP

Frans Wouters began his career as a pupil of Rubens. He was primarily a landscape painter but he also accepted some important commissions for religious subjects in churches.
He was elected Court painter to the Emperor Ferdinand II & then the Prince of Wales, later to become King Charles II.
Wouters returned to Antwerp after the Revolution & was elected a director ot the Academy in that city.

This painting is interesting because Wouters seems to have incorporated elements from Rubens(figures) & Elsheimer(landscape).

Museums where examples of the artist's work can be found include:
Antwerp, the Queen's Collection, the Hermitage & Vienna.
