Context: Jan van Goyen painted his landscapes with just a few shades of gray and brown. With these restricted colors, he developed realistic impressions of weather, perspective, and light. Emmerich was a German town just across the Netherlands border. Because it was actually governed by a member of the Dutch royal family, it was a popular spot for travelers.
