Jan van Goyen paintings Geocoded

View of Dordrecht from the Dordtse Kil

Painting by Jan van Goyen (1596-1656).  The heavy atmosphere in all his works give an immediacy that belies the 400 intervening years between their creation and our sense that we could be standing just in the spot he was, feeling the same breeze and hearing the same activity on the nearby boats.
