Entrance to a Village

Meyndert Hobbema Dutch

Not on view

This picture represents the artist's favorite theme of quiet village life, an image that also appealed to patrons in the bustling city of Amsterdam. Hobbema trained there with Jacob van Ruisdael during the second half of the 1650s. His paintings were extremely popular in eighteenth-century England and with American collectors of the Gilded Age (about 1870–1915).
