Description of the picture :
Landscape with farm – Mayndert Hobbem. Oil on canvas. 82 x 103 cm
Maindert Hobbem, a Dutch landscape painting master, perceived nature as a human existence. His landscapes are always inhabited, various buildings, houses, mills, roads, groomed by people, or people themselves, busy with their daily affairs, are sure to meet in them. A quiet, peaceful life of a person in the lap of nature is the ideal of a Dutch artist. Hobbema did not write a wild, striking nature by the power of the elements and romantic drama not mastered and not conquered by people.
