6.3 Mannerism – Figure Painting and Landscape

The Rudolfine version of Mannerism is represented by Bartholomeus Spranger’s Baptism of Christ in Wrocław [i],1 and in its northern Netherlandish form in Cornelis van Haarlem’s Christ with the Eucharistic Chalice and the Cross in Warsaw [i] as well as Jacob Isaacsz. van Swanenburg’s Sybil Showing the Underworld to Aeneas in Gdańsk [i].2

The beginnings and development of independent Flemish landscape painting are well documented in Polish collections, especially in the National Museum in Warsaw, which owns paintings attributed to Jacob Grimmer and Gillis Mostaert, Pieter and Anton Stevens as well as such high-quality pieces as Jan Brueghel’s Wood Landscape with Robbers Sharing Loot  [i] and Abraham Govaerts’s Wooded Landscape with Peasants Crossing a Ford [i], a charming Park Landscape by David Vinckboons [i] and numerous Mompers [i].3

The homogenous Warsaw group of Mannerist vistas should be complemented with Joos II de Momper’s Mountain Landscape  [i], the Return from the Calvary attributed to Pieter Schoubroeck in Poznań [i] and a late, fantastic Landscape with Lot and His Daughters by Marten van Valckenborch in the Catholic University in Lublin [i].4 The Valckenborch family is further represented by Lucas II van Valckenborch’s Rest during the Flight to Egypt in the Royal Castle in Warsaw [i]5 and a spirited, chiaroscuro Rape of Helena attributed to Gillis van Valckenborch in Wrocław [i].6 Teniers’ Landscape with a Camp of Gypsies from the 1640s [i]7 which is very refined in its use of colour and considered quite exceptional in the artist’s oeuvre displays already a Baroque feeling of nature.
