A mid-17th century fragment - In the way of Antoon Van Dyck. Oil on canvas (duplicated).
A typical genre painting from the 17th century. A scene around a main figure of a fortune-teller in gypsy clothing who consults a glass ball. She is watched with interest by a young woman and Cupid, as well as by a bearded and harnessed, Spanish looking man in the background. Above the young woman, a crown with flowers “floats”, which may here be a symbol of the meaning of “love takes precedence over battle”.
The young woman who stores her eyes is typical in the way of Antoon Van Dydck. Possibly this is from the school/area of.
It's gotten a little darker in colour over the centuries. After cleaning, this work can reveal a lot of secrets.
On the backside there are some unclear notes in pencil. Including A.V.Dyck.
Photos are part of the description. Will be carefully sent with track and trace.
