Commentary: Elements the artist repeated throughout his career — variegated foliage, picturesque cottages, a winding road, and a sky with windswept clouds — can be seen in this landscape. But if Hobbema’s repertory of motifs was limited, he managed nevertheless to invest his paintings with considerable freshness and variety.
