Distant Town Seen across Water and Fields

Style of Jan van Goyen Dutch

Not on view

This river scene recalls the style of Jan van Goyen’s drawings of the 1630s. Yet the drawing seems too schematic for van Goyen. While it has also been given to Anthonie Waterloo -- based on his drawings imitating van Goyen’s work of the 1630s -- the attribution is too tenuous to draw a definitive conclusion.
