  • The view may depict Steinfurt Castle in Burgsteinfurt, Westphalia, which Ruisdael is thought to have visited during his travels with Nicolaes Berchem c.1650-1. Castles occur frequently in Ruisdael’s works and appealed to Dutch artists not just as recognizable local landmarks but also for their associations with strength and impregnability.
