De molen bij Wijk bij Duurstede (easel painting (painting by form); Jacob Isaacksz. van Ruisdael (Haarlem 1629-06 - Amsterdam 16...; ca. 1668/1670; Rijksmuseum (Amsterdam, North Holland, Netherlands); SK-C-211; RM001.collect.5333)
Note: Dark clouds are gathering above this river landscape. The sunlight occasionally penetrates the clouds, casting a dramatic light upon the mill towering above all else. The buildings in the background are the castle and St Maarten's Church of Wijk-bij-Duurstede. The river in the foreground is the river Lek. Jacob van Ruisdael was one of the most famous painters of wind and water mills in the seventeenth century. This painting depicts an utterly Dutch landscape: flat, lots of water, sky and mills.
