Catalogue Note

This painting exemplifies the monochrome palette of brown and yellow tones, which is so characteristic of the artist's middle period in the early 1640s. The pair of towers and the buildings beside them are found in other paintings by Van Goyen, including that of vertical format in the Ashmolean Museum, Oxford.1
