 View of Dordrecht by CUYP, Aelbert
Aelbert Cuyp lived and worked in Dordrecht which, although a small provincial town, had a flourishing local school of painting.
Having adopted and refined his version of the Italianate landscape style, Cuyp practised it for many years of a successful career, which he ended as a member of the regent class of Dordrecht and an elder of the Reformed Church, the owner of a fine town house and an extensive country estate.
Because his style does not develop significantly his paintings are difficult to date but this view of his native town from the River Maas was probably painted in about 1655.
