Aert van der Neer, Beugelen, 'Kolven door den beugel'. 1649

English, Nederlands


Evening Game of ‘Kolven door den beugel’ in a Dutch Village, 1649. Aert van der Neer

The serene mood permeating the painting is still enhanced by the golden light of the setting sun. People amuse themselves and rest; two men with clubs are playing ‘kolf door den beugel’.

An unusual kind of very impressive lighting in the represented landscapes was this artist´s speciality.
