    "Forest path" is a representative work of the great landscape  painter Holland, Hobbema (Meindert, 1638-1709). The picture depicts a very ordinary  muddy village road with many shades of different ruts printed on it, with tall and  thin trees lined up on both sides. It is both symmetrical and varied. At the other  end of the trail, a villager is holding a grazing animal. On the cross road on the  right, there are two rural women who are talking while walking. On the right close- up is a plantation. A peasant woman trims the branches. The horizon is low, and the  sky is set aside. The painter has more possibilities to depict the beautiful sky  above the clouds. How can such a seemingly bland picture have such a great artistic  charm?

        Every good landscape painting is always a blend of emotion and  scene. Hobbema is an idyllic landscape painter who has a strong passion for his  hometown. Although there are not many works of his life, he observes each painting  and observes nature's beauty and poetry earnestly. The "Middle Hani's Boulevard"  shows a far-sighted perspective of rural scenery. The painter used the language of  poetry to reproduce this idyllic scene with a strong sense of perspective, giving  the viewer a relaxed sense of beauty. Extremely far-sightedness makes people relaxed  and happy. On both sides, it is symmetrical and looks very stable. However, the  subtle, rhythmic, diverse, and unified details are like the notes of the jumps on  the piano that have slightly changed notes. It is not monotonous and monotonous. On  the contrary, it looks relaxed and happy. You see, the branches of the line are  patchwork, and the dark trees in close quarters are densely spaced with the  plantations. In the distance, there is a steeple of the church on the left, and two  high-top huts on the right. All these are passed by the painter. Carefully  conceived. A strict perspective of the vanishing point brings the audience's mood to  the distance. Because this painting successfully demonstrated the technique of focal  point perspective, it has been used as a classical demonstration work in the  teaching of fine art techniques.

        Hobbema is a student of the Dutch landscape artist Ruisdahl (1628- 1682). It is self-evident that his technique is affected by the artist. However, the  final artistic style is not the same and there is no such thing as Rui. Stella is as  productive. Ruisdal's landscape mood tends to be melancholy and sad, and Hobbema's  picture is clear and simple, but also filled with a more cheerful atmosphere. This  is mainly because the former mostly depict wild hills and swamps, silver-gray sky  and vast plains; and each of the latter's paintings is like an idyllic song, with  elegant mud and rustic. The tranquility of the countryside is intriguing and  intoxicating. In particular, this “Forest path” has been more elaborate and  detailed in this regard and it is also the most praised by the people.
