Landschap bij naderend onweer (easel painting (painting by form); Willem (I) Roelofs (Amsterdam 1822-03-10 - Berchem 1897-05-1...; 1850; Rijksmuseum (Amsterdam, North Holland, Netherlands); SK-A-4868; RM001.collect.5270)
Note: A threatening mass of dark clouds hangs above the dune landscape. The rider spurs his horse on. He is holding his hat tight and his jacket is flapping in the wind. A dog follows them. Speed is of the essence, the storm could break at any moment. For a second, the sun breaks through the clouds. The light shines on the sandy ground, lighting up the silver-white birch trunks against the dark dunes. The scene illustrates the insignificance of humankind compared to the vastness of nature. It is typical of Romanticism. This dramatic scene was painted by Willem Roelofs in 1850.
