About The Mill

The Mill is a painting by the Dutch baroque artist, Rembrandt van Rijn. The painting features a windmill as the central focus and is considered one of his most stunning landscape creations.

Rembrandt was highly regarded during his time, and today he’s still considered a central figure in the Dutch Golden Age of art. He received exceptional creativity and prosperity from his works, which are categorized into different periods such as portraits and self-portraits.

Previously doubted to have been painted by Rembrandt, “The Mill” has been restored and accepted as his original work now. The painting is part of the permanent collection of the National Gallery of Art in Washington DC.

In addition to “The Mill,” Rembrandt created several other masterpieces that not only showcased his technical skill but also conveyed emotion through each stroke he made on canvas. This demonstration can be seen in most of his portraits with special attention given to his self-portraits where they illustrate how skilled he was at capturing human emotion within artwork.

Overall, “The Mill’s” restoration solidified its seat amongst some of Rembrandt’s finest works of art such as “Night Watchx.” As with many other pieces previously doubted throughout history, new techniques emerge allowing us to get fresh insight into famous paintings like this one.
