Landscape with a Stone Bridge, Rembrandt van Rijn, c. 1638

oil on panel, h 29.5cm × w 42.5cm × d 5.5cm More details

Rembrandt painted only a few landscapes, mostly imaginary mountain scenes. Although The Stone Bridge is composed of elements studied from reality, it probably does not represent a specific place. The painting’s magical quality derives from its dramatic illumination: a beam of sunlight breaks through the clouds, making the approaching storm seem twice as menacing.
