A tranquil etching on Ingres d’Arches off-white laid paper paper titled “Landscape with a Cow Drinking” by Rembrandt Van Rijn. Circa 1650. A 20th/21st Century impression printed by Marjorie Van Dyke. From the “Millenium” edition limited to 2500 examples. It is believed that, in this peaceful pastoral image, Rembrandt combined the landscape in the foreground—showing the countryside surrounding Amsterdam—with a series of mountains in the distance taken from a location hundreds of miles away. To achieve the atmospheric quality found in this etching. Rembrandt employed very delicate linework created with a fine-etching needle. Around the time of the creation of this etching plate (ca. 1650), Rembrandt’s financial status began to deteriorate and grow desperate, and he was unable to make his mortgage and tax payments any longer. Scholars often suggest that this etching and other landscapes of the period may reflect his desire to be transported to peaceful and idyllic places far away from the troubles in his life. From a private collection, originally purchased from Park West Gallery in 2005. Gallery tag on verso. Dimensions: 22.25”h x 23.25”w x 1.5”d (framed). In very good condition.
