Landscape with Waterfall, Jacob Isaacksz. van Ruisdael, c. 1668

Landscape with Waterfall, Jacob Isaacksz. van Ruisdael, c. 1668

oil on canvas, h 142.5cm × w 196cm. More details

The tiny figures in this grand landscape with a rushing waterfall are almost lost. The composition is dominated by gnarled trees, barren tree trunks, and roiling water. The dramatic cycle of nature’s birth and decay is almost tangible. A church tower rises up in the distance like a beacon of peace.

On display in Eregalerij Jacob Isaacksz. van Ruisdael
