Context: As Rembrandt had before him, Mondrian drew and painted simple farm buildings in the Dutch countryside. For both artists, such structures resonate with the emotions and experiences of human life. Mondrian's deep involvement with nature as a spiritual force also permeates this scene and enriches the symbolism, as the waning light of day evokes the solitude of life's end.
