Landscape with a pond, boat and windmill; a hill in the distance to right. 1674
Pen and brown ink with grey and brown wash and white bodycolour; framing lines in pen and brown ink (partly cut away).
Verso: mostly laid down (see Inscriptions).
No watermark visible. A note in the Museum's files, perhaps dating from the 1960s, records a watermark in the old backing-paper, a crowned shield with an indistinct motif within; it may be that this is a seventeenth-century mark.

- Curator's comments
- Entry from Martin Royalton-Kisch, 'Catalogue of drawings by Rembrandt and his school', 2010, Philips Koninck, cat. no.10:
The location depicted has not been identified, but like cat. no.9 (Oo,9.83) could be based on the terrain near the Utrecht hills.
The inscription on the verso with the date '1674' provides the key to dating several works of this type by Koninck (see under cat. no.12; Oo,9.108).
