A fine and beautiful mid 17th century oil on canvas depicting an important palace courtyard with figures. The palace appears in the background of the painting with a large manicured courtyard at the forefront, centering an exquisite carved marble fountain with dolphins. The painting has a mysterious quality with an ominous painted sky and large shadowed trees, with curious figures in the foreground, a Pair of courting lovers to the left and court entertainers to the right with a curious, devilish onlooker. The work in unsigned.
