Bentheim Castle

Ruisdael, Jacob Isaacksz van1650 - 1682


Amsterdam, Netherlands

Bentheim Castle still exists. It is located on the GermanDutch border region, but the high mountains Ruisdael depicted in this painting are not found there. Fantasy and reality are interwoven in this scene. The painter made a dozen paintings of this castle, each with a different mountain landscape. In 1816, Goethe, the famous German writer, rightly called Ruisdael a poet.
