Note:
Although Van Strij was strongly influenced by his famous predecessor and ‘towny’ Aelbert Cuyp (1620-1691), this work shows strong resemblances to the oeuvre of Meindert Hobbema (1638-1709). Van Strij had seen the painting A stormy Landscape by Hobbema in 1800 in Middelburg, which is now part of The Wallace Collection in London (inv.no. P75), and copied this work on paper. Several details of this drawing can be found in his works, such as the trees, pathway and river depicted in this painting.
