Aelbert Cuyp: 'A River Scene with Distant Windmills'

Aelbert Cuyp, who was later to develop a personal interpretation of the so-called Dutch Italianate landscape style, began his career as a landscape artist in the near-monochrome manner of Jan van Goyen. This work, showing a calm river scene with small boats and windmills on the low horizon, was painted shortly before he changed his style under the influence of Jan Both, who returned from Italy in 1641.
