Aert van der Neer, A Frozen River by a Town at Evening

A Frozen River by a Town at Evening, about 1665 by Aert van der Neer (1604 - 1677)

Van der Neer specialised in landscapes seen by moonlight or evening light. The composition, with the waterway receding into the distance at right angles to the horizon, is characteristic of van der Neer. This example was probably painted in the mid-1660s.
