Landscape with wooded hills and stream by Jacob van Ruisdael

Painting by Dutch painter Jacob van Ruysdael “Landscape with wooded hills and a stream.” The size of the painting is 76 x 98 cm, oil on canvas. Reysdal managed to turn landscape painting into a mirror of human emotions. In the paintings of the painter, the sensitive, tense and passionate susceptibility of the Reisdal-man to the life of nature in its private and general manifestations makes itself felt.

The painting “Landscape with wooded hills and a stream” shows how the expressive possibilities of portraying the sky, painted by Reisdal, are of increasing importance for Dutch painters;

The sky in the artist’s picture not only balances the composition, but also introduces air and space into the scene.

Ruysdal makes every little motive feel in a complex choir of the image of nature, be it a road running upwards, or a tree disheveled from a strong sea wind, a disheveled bush, or a cloud foretelling a thunderstorm. Reisdal liked to write forest thickets, hills, swamps, waterfalls, streams and other places where a person feels like a small part of great nature.
