A Goat and a Sheep in an Italianate Landscape

R oos’ paintings from this period are characterised by the marriage of a loose, informal compositional style, and highly precise brushwork. As demonstrated by A Goat and a Sheep in an Italianate Landscape, his animals are full of character and individual vitality. This work closely resembles the paintings completed by Roos around the year 1690, such as Resting Goat and Sheep, held in the collection at the Kunstmuseum in Bern, Switzerland.
