About this artwork

Perhaps the most prolific etcher in history, Rembrandt van Rijn created nearly 300 etchings. Most of his landscape etchings were done in the 1640s, with a few, such as this one, executed in the early 1650s. Rembrandt used his experimental etched and drypoint lines to create tonal effects that are notably looser than those of the more tightly controlled Schelte Adams Bolswert. The way that the trees appear to shade the road and cottages adds a calming luminosity to the image.
