Estimate: US$800 - US$1,200
Price realised:  US$923
Lot number 211, Views: 61

Continental School, 17th/18th Century Falconers on Horseback Unsigned, incised "D. HALS" and "D. HAS" on the reverse. Oil on panel, 14 1/2 x 22 1/4 in. (37.0 x 56.5 cm), framed. Condition: Horizontal cracks to panel, partially cradled and with a repair to center on the reverse, craquelure, abrasions, paint losses. N.B. Although the inscription on the reverse would point to Dirk Hals, current scholarship concludes that the work does not relate to that artist. The work at hand is thought most likely to be Dutch or German, dated possibly to the 18th century. There is a very similar work cataloged in the database of the RKD (Netherlands Institute for Art History). (https://rkd.nl/explore/images/232263). Both compositions would seem to be based on some earlier, mid-17th century painting or print.
