The attractive panel Rider on a towpath near Noorden is a typical Dutch scene. Weissenbruch painted it several times. There is also a watercolor of it. On a swampy dike in Noorden, during summer on the Nieuwkoopse Plassen, a farmer rides on his horse. In the distance we see a mill. From 1882 Hendrik Johannes Weissenbruch, like many other painters, stayed in Noorden during the summer period. This water-rich environment is an important source of inspiration for him. He feels at home there, also artistically. And from that moment on, more and more people know to appreciate his work. A striking feature of this painting is its low position, which means that the swirling, almost ominous clouds demand all the attention. Weissenbruch pays a lot of attention to the sky and the light.
