Landscape with Windmills near Haarlem

The Groote Kerk, Haarlem, is seen in the distance. DPG168 is an early work, dated c.1650/2 by Hofstede de Groot. A horse and figures centre left (since overpainted) and a rider and boy on the right were shown by pigment analysis to be post?seventeenth-century additions and were removed in 1997. They are partially recorded in a copy made by Constable in 1831 (G. Reynolds, 'The Later Paintings and Drawings of John Constable', New Haven and London, 1984, no.32.44, pl.855).
