Jakob Isaacs van Ruisdael (Jacob van Ruisdael, Jacob Isaakszoon van Ruysdael) (1628/1629, Haarlem is buried on March 14, 1682) was the most significant Dutch landscape painter.

It is assumed that the first painting lessons Jacob van Ruisdael received from his uncle, the artist Salomon van Ruisdael. It is known that Winter has mastered the profession of a surgeon and practiced in Amsterdam. Jacob Ruisdael entered into Haarlem the Guild of painters in 1648, with 1659 became a citizen of Amsterdam. Unfortunately, the artist's talent was not adequately appreciated during his lifetime.

Died Ruisdael in March 1682 apparently, death overtook him in Amsterdam, but then his remains moved to Haarlem and 14 March 1682 buried in the Church of St. Bavo. Found in some sources indicating that the artist died in poverty in the shelter for the poor, is the consequence of the confusion: in fact, this happened not him, but his cousin, son of Salomon van Ruisdael, too Jakob and also a painter.

Ruisdael is regarded as a leading master of landscape painting Holland. He managed to turn landscape painting into a mirror of human emotions. In his paintings makes itself felt empathetic, stress-passionate susceptibility of the artist to the life of nature in its private and public manifestations. The manner of small strokes characterizes a variety of forms seen in the landscape motif and yet their emotional experience, creative perception. Ruisdael makes you feel every little motive in complex choir image of nature, whether it is a road running up, or bowed from the strong sea wind tree, disheveled Bush or predicting a storm cloud. The motion of each motif is composed in a wide, powerful process of interconnection and interaction of the elemental forces of nature and all its creatures on earth. Ruisdael loved to write depths of the forest, swamps, waterfalls, where people only passerby, small Dutch town or village, lost in the spatial gave plains under the great triumph of the power of the sky. Wolfgang Goethe called him "like a poet, an intellectual artist.

Creative heritage Ruisdael be about 450 paintings. Most of his landscapes is devoted to the nature of the native Holland, but Jacob Ruisdael also wrote oak forests of Germany or by the example of his friend artist of Allerta van Everdingen waterfalls Norway.
