Adam Pynacker was one of a group of Dutch landscape artists, including Jan Asselijn, Jan Baptist Weenix, Nicholaes Berchem and Karel Dujardin, who visited Italy in the mid-17th century where, like Richard Wilson a century later, they were inspired by the warm light of the Roman Campagna. Collectively they are known as the Dutch Italianates and the artist of this picture was one of the principal exponents of this style. He travelled in Italy from about 1645, returning to Holland by 1652. This work dates from shortly after his return and is probably a pair to Sunny Landscape with River and High Mountains, now in the National Museum, Stockholm. The composition includes some of his favourite motifs, such as the broken tree trunk in the foreground.
