Dignitaries landing at a River Port

1688. Oil on canvas. Not on display

These two river port views (P2104 and P2105), replete with anecdotal scenes, are characteristic of the work of Hendrick van Minderhout. Since they were acquired by the Museo del Prado, they have been exhibited as a pair. Díaz Padrón (1975) identifies the Dignitaries landing at a River Port as a view of Venice. However, although the column would indeed seem to be inspired by the Piazza San Marco -here, crowned by the Archangel Saint Michael overcoming the Devil- the architecture in both scenes is in fact more reminiscent of ports in the Netherlands, albeit imaginary ones. Both canvases deal with fantasy scenes depicting the arrival and departure of senior dignitaries. There are two somewhat larger versions of these scenes signed and dated 1689 (Posada Kubissa, T.: Pintura holandesa en el Museo Nacional del Prado. Catálogo razonado, 2009, p. 306).
