HOBBEMA, Meyndert
(b. 1638, Amsterdam, d. 1709, Amsterdam)

Wooded Landscape with Travellers

Oil on panel, 61 x 87 cm
Private collection

This is a mature picture of the artist, depicting a wooded landscape with travellers on a track by a cottage, a rider and his dogs on the right, and two peasants and a horse-drawn cart on the left. In many of his mature works Hobbema depicts the predominately wooded landscape and characteristic timber-framed vernacular architecture of Gelderland and other parts of the Eastern Netherlands.
