River View by Moonlight, Aert van der Neer, c. 1640 - c. 1650

oil on panel, h 55cm × w 103cm. More details

Van der Neer was a painter with two specialities: winter scenes and nocturnal moonlit landscapes. With a limited range of colours, Van der Neer here created the perfect illusion of a moonlit night. The chilly moonlight is reflected in the water, glances off the windowpanes of the houses at left, and lights up the white feathers of the ducks in the foreground.
