Dutch, 1576–1639

Roelandt Savery was a painter, printmaker, and draftsman who rendered dramatic landscapes and cityscapes; his method and style in depicting mountains, rocks, and waterfalls influenced future generations of landscape painters, including Jacob van Ruisadel. Savery’s work built upon Mannerist traditions of painting, though he was a staunch believer in painting animals and figures from life. A signature feature in his landscapes was his portrayals of exotic animals in alpine or fantastical settings; he had encountered many rare animals during his travels and studied from the imperial menagerie in Prague. Popular subjects for his works were the Garden of Eden and the tale of Orpheus; he also made floral still lifes. Savery’s major influences included Hans Bol and Jan Brueghel.
