Context: Ruisdael's paintings are distinguished by his emotional response to nature. He used powerful forms and dense colors to convey a sense of grandeur and drama. Here the dead tree reminds us of the natural cycle of life and death. Ruisdael's contemporaries were profoundly affected by his work and he was widely revered during the 18th and 19th centuries.
