Jan ten Compe (1713-1761) Dutch Landscape Painter

Jan ten Compe found his calling in painting views of major Dutch towns. His paintings are so precise that they are of special interest to historians because of their topographic and architectural accuracy. He rendered buildings in minute detail, adding daily activities to enliven the scene. All the details of life in the city square are remarkable.

  1. I haven't heard of this artist before but his paintings are incredible. The seventh looks strangely familiar and I think it's the most beautiful of the ones you posted.

    Anyway, just to let you know that I'm sending The One Lovely Blog Award your way. You can check the details on my blog (http://thecultureenthusiast.blogspot.com) if you wish to accept it. Thanks, Paula
