Trying to pinpoint a location on a painting


Hey all. Just signed up with you guys. Looks like a wealth of info.

I'm wondering if you can help - I hope this is the right sub forum, I'm sure the Mods will move it if needed :- )


I've got an old painting that's been laying in the loft for some many years. It's nothing valuable, but we are trying to work out what it is a painting of. The architecture doesn't look like it's from U.K. And from my own limited knowledge of english dress, the fashion isn't familiar too.

Can anyone help pinpoint the country of origin of the landscape?
Thanks

Possibly Flemish or Dutch, less likely to be English as the houses and the scenery don't look quite right.

Agreed that it's Dutch, probably a nineteenth century genre piece (in spite of the 17th century costumes). Judging from the faded colour I assume it's a print?
