Cottage At The Woods
For a painter whose primary concern was the human figure, Rembrandt drew and etched a remarkably large number of landscapes. This view of a cottage near the edge of a wood, although characteristic in subject matter, is exceptional among his landscapes for its fluidity of line, profusion of wash, and large scale. This is the artist's largest landscape drawing, and one in which the cottage architecture somewhat overwhelms nature. Although the number of drawings firmly attributed to Rembrandt has diminished in recent years, following more rigorous and systematic evaluations of his drawn oeuvre, this impressive sheet has stood its ground. The drawing is signed and dated 1644 in the same pen and ink used to lightly sketch in the main elements.
