19th-Century Hague School Moonlit Landscape

DESCRIPTION

An atmospheric 19th-century oil on canvas depicting a moonlit river and a tree-lined riverbank. Its dark, slightly sombre, style is heavily reminiscent of the ‘Hague School’ group of painters that worked between around 1860 and 1890.

This influential collective shared a love for muted tones, subdued landscapes, and warm greys, and aimed to convey an atmosphere rather than simply a good likeness of the scenery before them.

Note the beautiful dapples of paint along the water, which are built up in the bottom left quadrant to give the moon a striking reflection.

The canvas is housed within a handsome coved frame with foliate decoration and signed illegibly in the lower right.
