In this work of 1873, Jan Hendrick Weissenbruch painted a fairly precise picture of the landscape. Later, in common with other artists of the Hague School, he would mainly capture the atmosphere of the landscape, with an eye for the changing weather and all possible nuances of grey and green. This landscape was painted near Schiedam.

  • Artist Information: Johan Hendrik Weissenbruch's father was a collector of works that included those of the painter Andreas Schelfhout. The influence of his work can be seen in the paintings of Weissenbruch. Weissenbruch's admiration for the 17th century painter Jacob van Ruisdael can be seen in the way in which he tried to imitate his clouded skies. Weissenbruch was, in addition to being a painter, also an etcher, lithographer and water colour artist. His travels took him to countries such as Belgium and France. Weissenbruch is currently considered one of the most important painters of the Hague School.
