Cottage near the Entrance to a Wood, Rembrandt van Rijn.
If I were writing an illustrated dictionary of art terms, next to “economy of notation” I would have one of Rembrandt’s drawings.
Interestingly, for an artist whose paintings were primarily portraiture, many of Rembrandt’s etchings, and a high percentage of the drawings apparently done for his own pleasure, were landscapes.
In the Metropolitan Museum of Art. Use “Fullscreen” link and zoom or download arrow.

Expert confirms painting is a Rembrandt
Charley Parker, please, don’t miss out on the works of Peder Mork Mønsted, Danish landscape artist. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Uqm4YS9x7-4
So proud to be of Danish descent.
Not only is Peder Mork Mønsted a personal favorite of mine (in particular, I love his paintings of creeks and streams in the woods: http://www.linesandcolors.com/2008/09/24/peder-mork-mnstead/ and http://www.linesandcolors.com/2010/08/30/more-peder-mork-monstead/ ), just by chance, I happen to be looking at some of his work today. I discovered a treasure trove of high res images of Mønsted’s work on the Bonhams auction site.
The trick is to do a search and then set the date range to “Past”: http://tinyurl.com/pgjobwy
When you go to the individual pages for the paintings, you can click for high-resolution zoomable images of most of the paintings.
You can find a couple of pieces by by Peder Severin Kröyer there as well: http://tinyurl.com/qxy7hqj
