On view

Late sixteenth- and early seventeenth-century Dutch landscape paintings were primarily panoramic views painted with a multiplicity of design and color. In the 1620s, a group of artists in Haarlem—Esias van de Velde, Jan van Goyen, Pieter Molijn and Salomon van Ruysdael—began to turn to their native countryside for subject matter. They developed a more unified structure by employing a common tonality throughout their paintings. Ruysdael signed this jewel of a painting “Ruyesdael.” By 1630–31 he dropped the first “e” in his signature.
