Dark 19th Century Dutch Landscape

DESCRIPTION

An atmospheric 19th-century landscape depicting a rural scene in the De Vecht area of the Netherlands. Its dark, slightly sombre, style is heavily reminiscent of the ‘Hague School’ group of painters that worked between around 1860 and 1890.

They were influenced by the Barbizon school before them, which included artists such as Théodore Rousseau, Jean-François Millet, Charles-François Daubigny, and Jean-Baptiste-Camille Corot.

It’s said that the Dutch painter, Gerard Bilders, was so inspired by the works of the Barbizon school that his enthusiasm, in turn, inspired an emerging generation of young like-minded painters.

This shared love for muted tones, subdued landscapes, and warm greys, enabled this group to achieve their aims of conveying an atmosphere rather than a creating an exact replica of what they saw.
