PROPERTY FROM A MIDWESTERN COLLECTION
This painting, dated 1634, was executed during a period of transition for the artist. During the 1620s, Van Goyen’s landscapes reflected the influence of his teacher Esias van de Velde, with stronger colors and more decorative and detailed design. By the early 1630s, Van Goyen had begun to move towards a more realistic approach and tonal simplicity that would ultimately lead, in the 1640s, to his more austere and monochromatic works. This painting, with the beautiful expanse of an overcast sky and muted palette for much of the landscape, is still enlivened with punctuations of red and green in the clothing of some of the figures.
