Winter View with a Waterway, Cottages and Two Boats, Rembrandt van Rijn, c. 1650
This finely drawn winter landscape was also ‘embellished’ by a later owner. The grey brushstrokes in the boat and the water are later additions. The drawing was in the possession of Jan Pietersz Zomer (1641-1726), an art dealer who was also an artist. Perhaps he thought that the additions would make it easier to sell.
