Painted in 1651, this large format composition demonstrates van Goyen's ability to control a restricted palette with masterful effect. Yellow and varying hues of golden-brown control the lower third of the composition, while freely applied passages of blue punctuate the white clouds above. Van Goyen reserves subtle pops of color for the staffage on the shore, rendering them with soft tones of red and green. Indeed, it is in van Goyen's final phase as an artist that he synthesizes his inventive tonal style into a more varied and confident combination of color and control.
