Arent Arentsz.: 'Fishermen near Muiden Castle'

Explore the paintings

Muiden Castle (left background), which is seen here from the west, lies about seven and a half miles east of Amsterdam. (For another view, see 'The Castle of Muiden in Winter' of 1658 by Jan Beerstraaten, also in the National Gallery's Collection.)

At one time this painting was attributed to Esaias van de Velde. Arentsz. used the figure of the fisherman on the left, in reverse, in another landscape (formerly Amsterdam, Wetzlar collection).
