Rembrandt apparently drew this landscape on a bend in the Amstelveenseweg, southwest of Amsterdam. The building on the left is an inn, recognizable by the sign at the front. Only the black pen lines are original. The brown strokes in the sky and the additions with the brush in the landscape were made by a later owner of the drawing.
