Meindert Hobbema: 'A Woody Landscape'

Explore the paintings

This composition is characteristic of Hobbema's approach to landscape painting: a forest scene with a view towards a clearing in the middle distance, illuminated by strong sunlight, and a picturesque farm building in the middle ground.

Another version of this composition (Zurich, Kunsthaus, Ruzicka collection), is dated 1665; the National Gallery's picture was probably painted shortly before.
