Cuyp's looped and choppy lines, plumped up with touches of color, bring us the beauty of the Dutch countryside in summer, when warm light flickers through twigs and foliage. Cuyp was probably in his early twenties when he made this fine sheet. It belongs to a group of drawings executed in and around Utrecht, his mother's hometown. The artist would have visited that city on a number of occasions, because it is also where his father, Jacob Gerritz, lived. Cuyp had been apprenticed to Abraham Bloemaert.
