The Mill.

Name: The Mill.
Artist: Rembrandt van Rijn
Location: The National Gallery of Art, Washington, DC, USA
Year: 1650

This painting speaks of peace and tranquillity. Here is a romantic view of nature as dusk settles and the day fades away. The three elements, earth, water and sky seem to dance with each other. The Mill, a man-made object stands tall as a cathedral. There is no suggestion of movement. The wings are almost transparent, forming the shape of a cross. This painting influenced many landscape painters that followed in later times. It is considered one of essential landscape paintings of all time.
