A River Landscape with a Village

In this picture a man on horseback can be seen riding along the towpath of a river. Aert van der Neer produced large numbers of moonlit landscapes, winter scenes and landscapes at dawn and dusk for the local art market in Amsterdam. The quality of his work remains high, however, and this is a particularly fine example.
