‘Our country is saturated with colour. ...I repeat, our country is not grey, not even in grey weather, nor are the dunes grey,’ wrote Constant Gabriël in a letter. Unlike many Hague School painters, he actually enjoyed depicting a beautiful summer day. There are even two of them in this painting: the image of the grass, sky and mill, and their reflection in the water.
