Baarn proposal voorstel

"This is the only state which is known of this Rembrandt etching. It must have a hidden message, for it is neither a biblical account nor a is it a registration of a normal landscape, both of which there are many examples in his work. First of all, it is assumed that he drew this scene on a plate which had been used by Hercules Seghers, a contemporary of Rembrandt; and he did not remove all of the original drawing. It seems to me that this was not on account of his incapability to remove or successfully camouflage the original drawing. Art historians claim that they cannot perceive any previous renderings. But I can distinctly discern parts of human shapes in the sky, especially in the lower left hand corner.

Rembrandt - three trees (view from Haarlem to Amsterdam) - drypoint etching - 1643

The rain seems to foretell a less pleasant repose in this seemingly peaceful landscape - it is coming from the west, which is to the left when looking from Haarlem to Amsterdam. The West is where the rain comes from in Holland. That is not where it is going because the people, portrayed in their activities, would not have been there anymore. Aside from the fishing man and the woman, on the lower left and the lovers in the dark thicket on the right edge of the pond, the three trees are the most obvious element of the work. They pose as a safe haven for the approaching storm. But what if it is a thunderstorm?"
