Landscape with a Stone Bridge was produced around the year of 1637, and it is an exciting artwork because Rembrandt nearly didn’t paint landscapes. This is one of the few and is currently part of the collection of the Rijksmuseum.
The scene shows a horizontal landscape in which one of the main elements is an arched bridge that divides the scene between the two sides of the river. To the left of the bridge, it’s possible to observe a muddy pathway that leads into a house. The brick house is surrounded by a small fence and wooden water wheel. This house is on the left and is placed among the shady trees. They gain light as they approach the bridge, where the sun is shining.
Walking towards the bridge, there is a human figure leaning forward, indicating the person is holding something quite heavy. The sun shines on the figure’s back, contrasting beautiful tones of orange for the light parts and dark muddy green for the shades. The next thing we see is the bridge - the apex of the painting. Sunlight shines straight onto it. The water that runs under the bridge is bright blue, and there is a dark boat going down the river and shaded by the bridge itself.
The bridge is ringed by a tall tree and a little wooden fence, all lightened in pastel orange and green. The river runs to the right of the composition, and its margins follow the same movement. The water and the grass get darker and darker as they move away from the center of the bridge. In the middle of the shadows, there is a cattle driver calmly walking. Shades are representing a town in the back, a church tower pointing into the sky from the middle of the bushy trees that separate this place on the foreground with the idea of a village on the back.
There are heavy clouds in the sky depicting the drama of a terrible storm that is about to start. The dramatic feeling is enhanced by the contrast caused by the sunbeams on the bridge and the darkness on the corners of the landscape. Rembrandt transported this climatic sense to other several pieces up to the point that it became one of his most important trademarks.

meaning that it will arrive mounted on wooden bars.
If you're considering not framing your painting at all, you may opt for a Gallery Wrap. The term Gallery Wrap refers to the way the canvas is stretched, which is by wrapping it around thick stretcher bars, about 1.5 inch thick, with the canvas being secured to the back rather than the sides of those bars.
