Catalogue Note

The Vlist is a small river in the province of South Holland.  It gives its name also to a village, which lies approximately half way between Rotterdam and Utrecht, and the present view may well show the edge of the village of Vlist.

Cats was a great master of the winter landscape, using the tone of his white paper brilliantly to evoke the chilly atmosphere of his lively winter scenes.
