Fedor Van Kregten was self-taught and pursued a career in art initially against his father’s wishes. He’s regarded as an important member of ‘The Hague School’ yet often overlooked due to his shy nature and hermetic lifestyle.
His works often depict pastoral scenes and he was particularly adept at depicting cattle. It’s said that he was so obsessed with perfecting his skills that he often chose to live among cows and sheep rather than people.
