Meindert Hobbema war neben Jacob Ruysdael (1628-1682) der bedeutendste niederländische Landschaftsmaler in der zweiten Hälfte des 17. Jahrhunderts. Vorerst von Cornelis Vroom (um 1591-1661) und Anthonie van Borssom (um 1630-1677) beeinflusst, zeigt sich ab der zweiten Hälfte der 1650er Jahren, eine gewaltige Veränderung in Hobbemas Oeuvre, die auf die Lehre und freundschaftliche Beziehung zu Ruisdael zurückzuführen ist. Bei der kürzlich in einer Schweizer Privatsammlung wiederentdeckten Landschaftsdarstellung, handelt es sich um ein charakteristisches Werk von Meindert Hobbema um 1663 aus der qualitätsvollsten Schaffensphase des Künstlers. Die für Hobbema kennzeichnende Farbpalette aus verschiedenen Braun- und Grüntönen, die von hellen Farbakzenten durchbrochen wird, herrscht hier vor und evoziert eine besonders harmonische Stimmung, die dank dem ausdrucksstarken Pinselduktus besonders lebendig erscheint. Besonders eindrücklich zeigt sich Hobbemas Lichtdramaturgie, bei der das Tageslicht die Wolken durchdringt und die Lichtung im Bildhintergrund stimmungsvoll erhellt. Stilistisch kann dieses Gemälde mit Hobbemas "Landschaft mit Wassermühle am Fluss", heute in der Wallace Collection in London, verglichen werden, die ebenfalls um 1663 entstand. Dr. Christopher Wright, der sich anlässlich der Auktion in London 1995 mit dem Gemälde befasste und es für den in Bearbeitung befindlichen Catalogue Raisonné vorsieht, bestätigt die Autorschaft und Datierung um ca. 1663. Ferner ist das Gemälde als ein eigenhändiges Werk von Meindert Hobbema im RKD, Den Haag, unter der Nr. 288139 archiviert.

Christopher Wright wrote: \‘In my opinion, thisbeautiful landscape with a bridge is an excellently preservedexample of the artist\’\’\’\’s mature style. It was painted around 1663,when Hobbema broke free from Jacob Ruisdael\’\’\’\’s tutelage anddeveloped into a painter of greater independence. The watermill atthe centre is familiar to us from many compositions by this master.The painting will be included as an autograph work by Hobbema in myforthcoming catalogue raisonné.\’\’\’\’ The works of the landscapistMeindert Hobbema, who was trained by Jacob van Ruisdael, differfrom those of his teacher in their more pronounced impasto, theirstronger chiaroscuro, and through a wealth of subtly finisheddetail. Rendering the shimmering, reflecting sunlight, Meindertresorted to a palette that contained more yellows, greens, andbrowns, as opposed to Van Ruisdael\’\’\’\’s, which was dominated byshades of grey. The staffage, fused in their surroundings, was, asa rule, painted by Hobbema\’\’\’\’s own hand.

Catalogue Note
This is a highly characteristic work of Hobbema's early maturity, datable circa 1663. Hobbema trained with Jacob van Ruisdael shortly after the latter had moved from Haarlem to Amsterdam in the 1650s, but remarkably, Ruisdael's influence on the younger painter is not apparent until the beginning of the next decade, in circa 1662. He achieved maturity with astonishing speed in the ensuing few years, and his fame rests on a group of landscapes painted between 1662 and 1668, most of which are composed along similar lines to the present example, with a hamlet of thatched timber-framed farmhouses nestling under oak trees growing in thin, sandy soil. Hobbema's low viewpoint allows the viewer to see between the trunks of the oaks; a higher viewpoint would be obscured by foliage. His subject matter is reminiscent of the drawings made by Ruisdael in the Eastern Netherlands in the early 1650s and the paintings that followed, but his own familiarity with this landscape, evident in many of his paintings, suggests that he may have visited the area himself, doubtless inspired by his teacher. Several paintings by Hobbema incorporating depictions of actual watermills on the estate of Singraven near Denekamp in the wooded province of Overijssel support the likelihood that he too travelled in this region.
Hobbema seems to have painted very little after his marriage in October 1668, but the magisterial Avenue at Middelharnis in the National Gallery, London, very different in character to his wooded landscapes of the mid-1660s, is a glorious exception.
It is unusual to apply the term \`\`\`\`early maturity\`\`\`\` to an artist whose career started a decade earlier, but whose full maturity is reached over the next two or three years, and who virtually ceased to paint within five years. His compositions of the mid-1660s are very similar in type to the present work, which anticipates them in a sense of monumentality that belies its small scale, but he paints with an increased freedom with the brush, especially in his skies, where he sometimes uses almost vertical brushstrokes, and the sandy ground is more frequently lit by dappled sunlight. Perhaps too he becomes more at ease with larger works, generally on canvas.
1
His strong sense of understanding of a very specific type of open oak woodland domesticated by farmhouses rarely alters, however. This painting, and the vast majority of his works from the mid-1660s (including those with watermills), give the viewer the impression that they are sites near each other in the same forest.

Meyndert Hobbema (1638-1709)
Signed and dated centre left: MHobbema 1684CertificateHeinrich Zimmermann, Berlin, 7.2.1951.The Amsterdam landscape painter Meindert Hobbema was a pupil of Jacob van Ruisdael. Based on the works of his teacher, he quickly established his own unique style and set of motifs, mainly painting wooded landscapes, often opening onto bright, sunny valleys speckled with little houses, windmills, watermills and calm ponds. The works evoke an atmosphere of peace and tranquillity, which is accentuated by the serene way in which the figures who populate them go about their daily activities. Hobbema's oeuvre is not especially large and he is known to have lived in relatively modest circumstances. He took up a position as municipal wine gauger in 1668 and apparently rarely painted after this.
