Landscape with a Stone Bridge

Rembrandtca. 1638


Amsterdam, Netherlands

Rembrandt painted only a few landscapes, mostly imaginary vistas with mountains in the background. While he might very well have seen the different parts of this landscape – the bridge, for instance – in reality, he actually assembled them into a non-existent entity. The light is magical: a sunbeam breaks through the clouds, making the approaching thunderstorm seem twice as menacing.
