This etched landscape, which is executed in the manner of Rembrandt, takes a windmill as its immediate focus. Set in the foreground, and slightly off the right, the windmill sits upon a fenced hillock. Beyond, cattle can be seen grazing to the right, with a windmill behind in the far distance. To the left, farm buildings, cottages, another windmill, and hills dominate the horizon.
Samuel Woodburn (1786 - 1853) was a British art dealer, primarily based in London, who specialised in prints and drawings. He was responsible for the posthumous dispersal of the collection of Thomas Lawrence. Woodburn was one of four brothers, with his brothers working in printselling, bookselling, and frame-making.
