A Waterfall by a Cottage in a Hilly Landscape

Cattle are herded across the bridge towards the cottage.

In the past this work has been attributed to Jacob Isaacksz. van Ruisdael, but it can, however, be linked with works by his cousin Jacob Salomonsz., who imitated his style. The signature closely resembles that with which Jacob Salomonsz. signed documents.
