The Cattle Ferry, Esaias van de Velde, 1622

oil on panel, h 75.5cm × w 113cm. More details

This painting is a milestone, for never before had a Dutch painter depicted his native flat, watery landscape in such a monumental format. Dusk is falling, and the light is beginning to fade. The glistening river winds its way into the distance, drawing the viewer along, too, past countless little figures.
