Landscape with Three Cottages along a Road, Rembrandt Harmensz. van Rijn, 1650
As his career moved into its later phase, Rembrandt began to create more landscape etchings. In many cases, the location is easy to recognize. These cottages stood southwest of Amsterdam along the Schinkelweg. In fact, he was not overly concerned about topographical accuracy. The houses behind the first cottage are a rather free interpretation of the actual buildings.
