The National Gallery is the primary British national public art gallery, sited on Trafalgar Square, in central London. It is home to one of the world's greatest collections of Western European paintings. Founded in 1824, from an initial purchase of 36 paintings by the British Government, its collections have since grown to about 2,300 paintings dating from the mid-13th century to 1900, most of which are on display.

Jacob van Ruisdael, A Cottage and a Hayrick by a River, about 1646-50

Jacob van Ruisdael's early work, like this delicate landscape of the 1640s, is often influenced by the style of his uncle, Salomon van Ruysdael, who may have been one of his teachers. This river landscape is characteristic of Salomon's compositions.

In the late 18th and 19th centuries this picture had a companion piece, 'A Cornfield', the present location of which is unknown. A drawing related to the composition of the National Gallery's painting is known and a variant survives in Detroit (Institute of Arts).
