Landschap met oude eik (easel painting (painting by form); Adriaen van Ostade (Haarlem 1610 - Haarlem 1685-04-28); 1640/1650; Rijksmuseum (Amsterdam, North Holland, Netherlands); SK-A-4093; RM001.collect.4897)
Note: A landscape with an old oak tree under a threatening sky, painted by Adriaen van Ostade in about 1640. Van Ostade, chiefly known for his depictions of peasant scenes, also painted some landscapes. This landscape was presumably inspired by the dunes near Haarlem. It is painted in tints of brown, grey, beige and ochre. The work follows a frequently used compositional pattern: a dark foreground with a tree as repoussoir, a clearly lit middle plane - consisting here of a cornfield and a stone bridge - and a somewhat darker background. The use of colour and chiaroscuro show the influence of Rembrandt.
