Clump of Trees with a Vista

Rembrandt (Rembrandt van Rijn) Dutch

Not on view

Clump of Trees with a Vista, probably Rembrandt's final landscape print, was created entirely in drypoint, a technique that produced the rich, velvety lines clearly visible in this impression. With quick strokes, Rembrandt sketched a small section of a farmhouse engulfed by trees. He boldly left the rest of the sheet almost entirely blank. It is thought that he began the print on site and then finished it in the studio. The farmhouse depicted here appears to have fascinated Rembrandt and his pupils, who drew it on several occasions and from different angles.
