45. [Flemish school]

Abraham and Isaac in a landscape.

[Antwerp], 17th c

Oil on copper, 11,6 x 24,2 cm, unsigned (minor craquelure pattern across the surface and ingrained dirt).

Under 19th-c. frame. (not studied outside frame).

Abraham, wearing a turban, is walking on a hillside with his son. Both the knife and faggots allude to the sacrifice to be performed. On the rear side of the copper the name of Theodoor van Thulden is written by a later hand, though this attribution is at the very least dubious. The style does not correspond to other attributed works by Van Thulden.
