Landscape with a Stone Bridge, Rembrandt van Rijn, c. 1638

Landscape with a Stone Bridge, Rembrandt van Rijn, c. 1638

oil on panel, h 29.5cm × w 42.5cm × d 5.5cm More details

Rembrandt painted only a few landscapes, mostly imaginary vistas with mountains in the background. While he might very well have seen the different parts of this landscape – the bridge, for instance – in reality, he actually assembled them into a non-existent entity. The light is magical: a sunbeam breaks through the clouds, making the approaching thunderstorm seem twice as menacing.

On display in room 2.8
