Salomon van Ruysdael: 'A River with Fishermen drawing a Net'

Explore the paintings

The painting is dated to the early 1630s because of its similarity to pictures such as 'River Landscape with Fishermen' and 'River Scene', which is dated 1631.

This is typical of van Ruysdael's compositions, with the bank of the river and the trees on the bank forming a wedge running across the picture plane which creates the illusion of spatial recession. The water is calm so that the bushes and trees are clearly reflected in it.
