In I990 two paintings turned up - originally constituting one larger panel, cat. 9a and 9b - which might be attributed to a little-known landscape painter: David de Hooch, active in Amsterdam, possibly Utrecht and perhaps The Hague between I639 and I655, as can be deduced from scant archival data and stylistic afflnities. Doubtlessly influenced by Bartholomeus Breenbergh's works of the I630s, De Hooch painted mainly Italianate landscapes, probably without ever having travelled to Italy himself. Most of the works assembled here were known under different and sometimes unlikely attributions such as Breenbergh, his namesakes and possible relatives Charles and Horatius de Hooch, Willem de Poorter, Anthonie van der Croos, Cornelis Decker and even Aelbert Cuyp. Here, eighteen paintings are presented and catalogued in a provisional chronology: five earlier, clearly somewhat inexperienced works, leaning heavily on examples by other painters (cat. I - 5), are followed by six paintings which show the artist gradually developing his own style (cat. 6 - II). The last seven pictures (cat. I2 - I8) most probably date from De Hooch's mature period, in all likelihood the first half of the I650s. Most of these are fairly large formats, on which the artist achieved quite well-constructed, unified compositions with a convincing atmosphere.
