A Watermill, Meindert Hobbema, c. 1664

oil on panel, h 62cm × w 85.5cm × d 9.2cm. More details

Hobbema painted more than thirty ‘portraits’ of watermills, based on drawings he had made in the east of the Netherlands. He drew the same mill from various angles, so that one could see exactly how it was assembled. Here he was interested primarily in the technical construction of the wooden water channel, rendered in grey, which stands out against the landscape.
