The Forest Stream  1660

by Jacob van Ruisdael

In the early fifties Van Ruisdael traveled in the wooded hill country of Germany near the Dutch border. His interest in this romantic landscape was reinforced after about 1656, when he settled in Amsterdam and became familiar with the views of Scandinavian landscapes by Allart van Everdingen. The present picture was probably painted in about 1660. (Source: [url=https://www...
