Aert van der Neer: 'A View along a River near a Village at Evening'

Explore the paintings

This painting may show a view along the river Vecht, but the site has not been identified, and the view may not be topographically accurate. In the foreground, the 'trekjacht' - a yacht which travelled along the canals between the main towns of the United Provinces drawn by a horse - flies a Dutch flag and has the arms of Amsterdam on its stern.

This work is one of van der Neer's largest paintings.
