Probably Flemish school (2nd half of 17th ct.), The Tower of Babel. Estimate 15000 €. Photo Nagel Auktionen

Oil on canvas. Rest. 90 x 110 cm.

Very detailed composition of the Old Testament subject of the Tower of Babel with numerous elegant persons and animals on the spiral ramp and countless workers, stonemasons, drays, furnaces, forges or woodworkers around. Special appears the depiction of the tower, that obviously does not follow the main types of this subject developed in the 16th and in the early 17th century.

Provenance: Collection from an estate at Baden-Baden.
