pen, h 132mm × w 231mm. More details

What makes this landscape unusual is the expensive parchment on which Rembrandt portrayed the scene. He depicted the view over the Amstel looking south from the middle of the bridge. In the distance, towards the horizon, he achieved the thin, atmospheric effect by showing the forms with the thinnest of lines and by rendering shade with only the lightest of brushstrokes.
