A Panoramic View of Haarlem
Jacob van Ruisdael

In the 1660s and early 1670s Ruisdael painted a series of so-called 'Haarlempjes' – panoramic views of Haarlem and its surrounding bleaching fields – which are among his finest achievements. This is an early example of such a 'Haarlempje'. The figures in the foreground were inserted by his contemporary Adriaen van de Velde.
