Polderlandschaft mit Kühen (Sommertag)

More about this artwork
Maris uses the unspectacular motif of grazing cows for this differentiated painting of light, It is one far removed from the characteristic toning technique of the Hague School. Rays of sun are reflected in the pools of the swampy landscape, allowing the shimmering surfaces to blend in with the mirrored blue of the sky. Against this background, the animals¿ bodies become loosely connected areas of colour that gain structure from the deft strokes of paint.
