some equine-related fine art from Dutch painter and etcher from Haarlem Pieter van Laer (a while back I wrote about him) , who spent most of 1630s in Italy, and whose sketches probably were used later on by Philips Wouwerman, when he painted his Italianate canvass. Master Wouwerman was greatly influenced by Pieter's work - says National Gallery of Art in Washington.
Now, in this painting - at Christies - attributed to a follower of van Laer there is a figure or red clad rider with a fur hat, on the right next to a waterfountain, who appears dress in a Polish zupan?
