Special Notice

Christie's charge a buyer's premium of 20.825% of the hammer price for lots with values up to NLG 200,000. If the hammer price exceeds the NLG 200,000 then the premium is calculated at 20.825% of the first NLG 200,000 plus 11.9% of any amount in excess of NLG 200,000.

Lot Essay

If the last digit of the date is indeed to be read as a "9", the present picture would appear to be the last dated extant work by the artist.
As pointed out by W. Stechow, Dutch Landscape Painting of the Seventeenth Century, 1966, p.68, Keirincxs late works are characterised by the transparent pattern of branches and leaves against the sky and the muted colour scheme of the foliage.
