Jacob van Ruisdael, Winterliches Dorf, um 1665, Bayerische Staatsgemäldesammlungen - Alte Pinakothek München, URL: https://www.sammlung.pinakothek.de/en/artwork/5347R5qG9e (Last updated on 25.11.2022)
In contrast to comparable, colourful scenes of winter amusements in Flemish tradition, in which people are shown enjoying themselves on the ice, Ruisdael uses a limited palette to capture the bitterly cold, bleak, and forbidding atmosphere of a virtually deserted village on a frozen river.
