Jan van Goyen painted the Dutch landscape in all of its myriad facets: from cities and villages to the sea and rivers, from hilly dunes to sprawling polders and holmes (flat ground near a river submerged in times of flood). Here some people on a hill in the left foreground look across an extensive river landscape. Van Goyen reserved a tremendous amount of space for the imposing cloudy sky looming above the low land.
