Distant View with Cottages along a Road, Philips Koninck, 1655

Distant View with Cottages along a Road, Philips Koninck, 1655

olieverf op doek, h 133cm × w 167.5cm. More details

A few dunes provide the only relief in this otherwise sweeping landscape stretching out under a vast sky. Koninck specialized in flat landscapes, which he built up with countless dots, like the knots in a tapestry. His palette and loose painting style reveal the influence of Rembrandt. The three cottages at the left are based on an etching by Rembrandt from 1650.
