A Watermill, Meindert Hobbema, c. 1664

oil on panel, h 60.5cm × w 85cm. More details

Hobbema learned to paint landscapes from Jacob van Ruisdael. While their works are similar in many respects, Hobbema’s paintings make a friendlier, lighter impression. Young tree tops stretch high up into the air, the foliage gleaming in the sun. A watermill that Hobbema had drawn in the eastern part of the Netherlands provided the subject of this painting.
