Jan Siberechts 1627–c.1700

T00899 Landscape with Rainbow, Henley-on-Thames circa 1690

Not inscribed.
Canvas, 32¼ x 40½ (82 x 103).
Presented by the Friends of the Tate Gallery 1967.
Coll. Major Perceval of Ballymote, Co. Sligo, having probably belonged to the Perceval family since the 18th century; sold c. 1962–3 to Gerald Kenyon, Dublin; Marshall Spink, from whom purchased by the Friends of the Tate Gallery.

The site of this landscape has not been identified though it seems quite definitely to show a specific place. Henley on Thames has been suggested but a scene in Nottinghamshire or Derbyshire seems more likely. Probably a late work.
