Meindert Hobbema: 'A Stream by a Wood'

Explore the paintings

This is a study for a composition elaborated in a larger picture by Hobbema (Rotterdam, Museum Boijmans Van Beuningen), which follows this design fairly closely but also includes a road with figures and a horizon on the left. The landscape is similar in technique and composition to paintings by the artist dated 1663 (Russborough, Beit Collection; Washington, National Gallery of Art). Both this picture and the Rotterdam version can probably be dated to about the same time: about 1663.
