Cows in a Meadow near a Farm, Paulus Potter, 1653

Cows in a Meadow near a Farm, Paulus Potter, 1653

oil on canvas, h 58cm × w 66.5cm. More details

Paulus Potter favoured painting animals in the countryside and at farms. He rendered the typical Dutch landscape – the pollard willows, the meadow, and the pond in the background –with great precision. In this painting the sun hangs low, calling to mind the late afternoon, when the languid cows and sheep take their rest.
