Meadow with Cows by the Water, Willem Maris, 1895 - 1904

oil on canvas, h 87cm × w 108cm. More details

A vast polder, cows in the meadow and – in the background – a windmill: these have been the hallmarks of the Dutch countryside since the 17th century. Such landscapes with cows near a ditch were Willem Maris’ speciality. He especially lavished attention on the atmosphere; and, indeed, the warmth of a summer day is almost palpable in this painting.
