City Walls in Winter, Willem Schellinks, c. 1650 - c. 1670

City Walls in Winter, Willem Schellinks, c. 1650 - c. 1670

oil on canvas, h 74cm × w 105cm. More details

A canal running alongside a fortified city disappears into the distance, the city walls in ruins and the bridge collapsed. In the background at right is a glowing furnace, where marble is burned to make chalk. These motifs, often found in paintings by Dutch Italianates, have here been shifted to a cold wintery day.

On display in room 2.17
