Landscape with a Church

Long thought to have been painted by a follower of Jacob van Ruisdael, this painting has only recently been identified as a work by Jan Vermeer van Haarlem I, who specialised in landscapes and winterscenes. There are stylistic similarities between the birch trees and other known works by the artist while a better reading of the signature on the rocks helped to support this new identification.
