Two farmers with their dog


Printmaker: Ruisdael, Jacob van




A large tree dominates the right foreground, its gnarled roots winding around the steep bank upon which it is perched above a pool below and to the left. A fallen log and boulder are seen in the right foreground and a barn is visible through the branches in the background. In the middleground at the far left, two farmers, one tall and carrying a pole or rod, walk away with their dog into the distance.
