River Landscape with Riders, Aelbert Cuyp, 1653 - 1657

oil on canvas, h 155cm × w 255cm × d 10cm More details

This is a panoramic, sun-drenched river landscape – somewhat hazy in the distance – with sketchily drawn clouds. Two Dutch officers halt at the river, and water their horses next to a herder and his resting cattle. This idyllic scene does not unfold in Italy, but along the Waal between Nijmegen and Cleves, where Cuyp made landscape drawings that he took back to his workshop in Dordrecht.

On display in room 2.30
