Aert van der Neer - Evening Game of Kolf in a Dutch Village
The serene mood permeating the painting is still enhanced by the golden light of the setting sun. People amuse themselves and rest; two men with clubs are probably playing a simpler form of croquet. An unusual kind of very impressive lighting in the represented landscapes was this artist´s speciality.
