More information
  • What do you see?

The painting shows a typical Dutch landscape with the feeling of a heavily clouded day, where the sun has the chance to break through now and again. A large part of the canvas is devoted to the sky. The scene is probably inspired by the area around Naarden near the Zuiderzee, where Ruisdael worked. Sun-kissed fields of corn already appeared at the start of Ruisdael's career, but this painting probably dates from the 1660s.
