Charles Victor Ensinck, Hague School Landscape With Cottages

Charles Victor Ensinck, Hague School Landscape With Cottages

A beautiful and highly atmospheric Dutch oil painting depicting two buildings within a wooded area.

The artist, Charles Victor Ensinck (1846-1914), was part of a community of artists known collectively as the ‘Hague School’. The group believed in painting exactly what they saw without any sentiment or romantic embellishments. As such, many of their works are quietly sensitive and honest to nature.

In this piece, we particularly love the flash of light as you look through the cottage window.

The painting is signed in the lower right.
