Landscape with the Flight into Egypt

Aelbert Cuyp Dutch

Not on view

Cuyp never went to Italy, but he emulated Dutch Italianate painters who had been there, above all Jan Both (ca. 1615/18–1652). Here the Holy Family’s route to Egypt seems to lead from Rhineland rocks and trees to an idyllic coast near Genoa.
