Landscape painting became a very popular genre in 17th-century Holland. This painting bears the signature of the famous landscape artist, Jacob van Ruisdael, but is unlikely to be by him; it does not particularly resemble other works by him nor is it of a very high quality. It was probably painted around the middle of the century by an artist of the Haarlem School.
