In 1814, George purchased an important group of Dutch and Flemish paintings formed by the banker Sir Thomas Baring. Among the works he thus acquired were two paintings by Aelbert Cuyp. This view of an imaginary landscape lit by the setting sun is characteristic of Cuyp’s fascination with the fall of evening light.

Purchased in 1814 as part of the Baring collection
