Tobias Verhaecht (Flemish, 1561–1631) A landscape specialist, Verhaecht was the first artist to teach Peter Paul Rubens. In this mythological scene, the maiden Herse is spied from above by the amorous messenger god Mercury as she walks with her sisters.

Verhaecht used some of the most distinctive elements of his landscape drawings in this scene--a horizon that appears to extend almost infinitely and a mountainous coastline described with small, looping lines and strategically applied light blue wash. The artist frequently employed these stylistic devices to define landscapes of fantastical and marvelous proportions.
