Jan Brueghel II et Peter Van Avont, Rest on the Flight into Egypt


Jan Brueghel II (Antwerpen 1601-1678) and Peter Van Avont (Mechelen 1600-1652) attributed.
“Rest on the Flight into Egypt”, oil on oak panel.

The present painting’s landscape setting was painted by Jan Brueghel II, while the figures are by the hand of Pieter van Avont. Jan Brueghel II and Pieter van Avont worked together quite frequently, with Van Avont commonly doing the figural staffage for Brueghel’s landscapes and Brueghel painting the landscape backgrounds for Van Avont’s figural scenes. The Kunsthistorisches Museum, Vienna, preserves two such collaborative pieces by the artists.

The painting shows an old restoration in the lower part which has now deteriorated. On request we can have a new restoration performed in our trusted laboratory.
