Warland often painted atmospheric landscapes of this type and he was undoubtedly influenced by his teacher at the Brussels Fine Art Academy, Willem Roelofs (1822–1897). Roelofs was a member of the ‘Hague School’ of artists who believed in working outside and painting how they felt rather than simply what they saw.
Later in Warland’s career, he exhibited at the prestigious Exposition Generale des Beaux-Art and he remains a popular artist for collectors of impressionism.
