The Windmill, 1641 by Rembrandt

This print exists in only one state. The windmill was at one time believed to have been the birth-place of Rembrandt. This, however, was not true, although it may have stood on the banks of the river Rijin, from which Rembrandt derived part of his name. Both this landscape and the View of Amsterdam show how intractable the flat Dutch landscape is for any attempt at dramatic treatment.
