Figures Driving Cattle in a Wooded Landscape, by Domenico de Marchis, called Tempestino (1655-1718).

Oil on canvas, 119cm by 169cm. In a carved and gilded frame.
An entry in the 1763 Burghley Inventory in the 9th Earl’s hand records: “the North dressing room … two large landscapes by Tempesta” and “Queen Elizabeths room …two large landscapes by Tempesta.”
The artist specialised in landscape painting, sometimes in collaboration with figural painters. He was the brother-in-law of Pieter Mulier, (1637-1701), who was known as Tempesta.
