Amsterdam – Rijksmuseum – Winter Landscape (painting)

winterlandschap KoekkoekWinter Landscape – Barend Cornelis Koekkoek (1803 – 1862)

For this winter landscape, Koekkoek chose a hilly region in Gelderland . Unlike his imposing forest views, this is a peaceful scene, with men pausing beside a sled laden with brushwood and vegetables. A panorama stretches out through the mist in the distance.

And because it’s wintertime I bought also the napkins with this ‘Winter Landscape’ on, in the museumshop.
