Woodland Pond at Sunset, Gerard Bilders, c. 1862
Bilders painted this small panel in the vicinity of Lochem in the province of Gelderland. He was fasci-nated by the colours of nature and tried to recreate them as closely as possible. This painting is about the effect of the sunset, which is mirrored in the pond. The branches of the trees stand out starkly against the glowing sky.
