The Rest on the Flight into Egypt

Ca. 1540. Oil on panel. Not on display

Before being attributed to Massys, this panel was thought to be by Patinir or Henri met de Bles, because of the “cosmic” panoramic landscape, a bird’s eye view with a very high horizon. Unlike in their work, however, rocky peaks have been relegated to the background, and the religious theme is treated on a reduced scale.
