Wooded Landscape by Jacob Jacobsz van Geel, 1633, Museum of the Netherlands

In a forest with majestic giant trees, a few tiny figures can be seen conversing. Their insignificance makes the trees, with their fanciful shapes and eccentric foliage, seem even larger. Van Geel stands apart from most Dutch landscape painters. He was not interested in realistic landscapes, but preferred imaginary ones.
