Title

Winter Landscape with Ice Skaters | Avercamp, Hendrick

Winterlandschap met schaatsers

Description

    • The high vantage point of this painting turns it into a sampler of human – and animal – activity during a harsh winter. Hundreds of people are out on the ice, most of them for pleasure, others working out of dire necessity. Avercamp did not shy away from grim details: in the left foreground crows and a dog feast on the carcass of a horse that has frozen to death.
