Catalogue entry

This undeveloped sketch of a likely Flemish landscape is slight and very swiftly executed. A windmill is suggested at left with two single diagonally crossing lines. A boat with a tall mast is to the right of windmill, and a figure stands in the foreground at right, perhaps pushing a plough.
