The Truncated Windmill, Jacob Maris, 1872

The Truncated Windmill, Jacob Maris, 1872

oil on canvas, h 45cm × w 112.5cm. More details

After living in Paris for six years, around 1871 Jacob Maris returned to his native The Hague, moving into a studio on the Noordwestbuitensingel. He probably painted The Truncated Windmill from his window, which would explain its unusual cropping. The mill and the bridge recur frequently in Maris’s work, with or without houses, in ever-changing compositions.
