The Triumphs of Caesar: Trumpeters and Standard-Bearer, Tempera by Andrea Mantegna (1431-1506, Italy)
In his imposing depiction of the Sonnblick mountain, including a rushing waterfall and Kolm Saigurn, Loos convincingly demonstrates the elementary nature of high-Alpine areas and the natural forces active within them. Loos' manner shows him to be a pioneer of realistic landscape painting. However, traditional Baroque foreground scenery with romanticising staffage figures leads into the heroically idealised expansive pictorial composition.
