Pollards (“Kopfweiden” - “Knotwilgen”)

Ponts de Paris  

Prints with typically Dutch (they are not…..) landscape dominating pollards are often just irresistible. Childhood memories, disappearing in spring flowered meadows. When field birds, insects and butterflies were still abundant. When neighbouring mixed agricultural farms keeping 20-40 milking cows, some pigs, some sheep and a chicken barn were enough to sustain a family.
