#27 - Dutch Landscape Paintings

The Boring Talks

A windmill. Two hunched countrymen. Lots of drab sky. 17th Century Dutch landscape paintings can be very dull, but is there something more exciting going on? Maybe. The writer Andrew Male takes a closer look at these works of art, and discovers a pastoral snapshot, which might be the world's first 'humblebrag'.
