Adriaen van de Velde: 'Golfers on the Ice near Haarlem'
Men in the foreground play golf; one is about to strike the ball with his club ('kolf'). On the horizon is a windmill and the skyline of Haarlem, dominated by the outline of the Grote Kerk.

In the figure group pentimenti (alterations made by the artist to areas already painted) are visible: for example in the arm of the man about to play, and in the outline of the man leaning on his club.
