This is one of Aert van der Neer’s largest paintings. A river takes centre stage, stretching into the middle distance beyond and reflecting back the slanting light of an evening sky and the darker shadows of the boats and trees.
There is some evidence from early sales catalogues that it may be a view of Maarssen, which is on the River Vecht and about five miles from Utrecht. However, it is probably an idealised scene designed to present a pleasing prospect.
