A Barn on the Bank of a Stream in Gelderland, Wouter Johannes van Troostwijk, c. 1805 - c. 1810

canvas, h 52.5cm × w 63cm. More details

Van Troostwijk breathed new life into Dutch landscape painting. In his pictures he did not compose an ideal vision of nature, nor did he refer back to monumental 17th-century landscapes. Instead, he lovingly rendered familiar everyday motifs, such as this bleaching field at a farm in Gelderland. The bright light and lush vegetation in this scene make it a truly Dutch landscape.
