GOYEN, Jan van
(b. 1596, Leiden, d. 1656, Den Haag)

River View with Church at Warmond

Oil on panel, 40 x 61 cm
Private collection

Jan van Goyen was inspired by the church and tower at Warmond when he painted this scene. He drew them in situ in his sketchbook (now at Bredius Museum). Later, he worked up the sketch at his studio to create this sun-drenched river landscape featuring these picturesque buildings.
