Allart van Everdingen: 'A Saw-mill by a Torrent'

Explore the paintings

Everdingen travelled to Scandinavia in 1644 and on his return introduced a new type of landscape into Dutch painting - rocky, mountainous scenes with torrents or waterfalls, based on those he had drawn there. This example was painted late in his career, in about 1670.

Van Everdingen's paintings of this type of landscape inspired Jacob van Ruisdael who painted a number of similar scenes. His works are also represented in the National Gallery's Collection.
