Landscape with Two Oaks, Jan van Goyen, 1641

Landscape with Two Oaks, Jan van Goyen, 1641

olieverf op doek, h 88.5cm × w 110.5cm. More details

The two gnarled oak trees, brightly illuminated by a few rays of sunlight, stand out sharply against the threatening sky. Van Goyen drew the trees with his brush. He used thin, almost transparent paint for the foliage and thick, grainy paint for the furrowed trunks. The landscape’s near monochrome palette is enlivened by the blue and red doublets of the two figures resting.
