Masterpiece in a beautiful Gehring frame. Extraordinary because Willem Roelofs Oosterbeek added in the signature. Work is featured in the standard book about art in the Veluwezoom
Willem Roelofs is one of the most important representatives of the Hague School, the painters who introduced Impressionism to The Netherlands around 1860. In the course of his career as an artist, he has undergone a major development, from a classical romantic painter to a real impressionist.
In 1847 Roelofs moved to Brussels. He soon became successful in the Belgian capital. At the Brussels salon in 1848 he showed a landscape of Gelderland and Drenthe. For the first named, Roelofs received the gold medal, while the second was purchased by the Belgian king.
Roelofs was deeply impressed by the French painters in Barbizon, the cradle of impressionism. The less restricted style of painting, works made after nature and “En plein air” by his French peers, particularly appealed to Roelofs. Roelofs followed the example of the painters of the Barbizon School and began painting in a more impressionistic style. With this, he became one of the founders of the Hague School.
