About The Event

A highlight in the newly reinstalled Northern European galleries, Landscape with a Windmill is a brilliant work by a precocious 18-year-old who became the greatest landscape painter in the Netherlands. Walsh examines the picture in detail and shows how it reveals the artist’s powers as a dramatist and how his image advertises the virtues of his new nation.
