The Vecht river region in Utrecht inspired F.J. van Rossum du Chattel to paint countless impressions, to the extent that critics called him ‘the painter of the Vecht’. He also painted the landscape around The Hague. Born in Leiden in 1856, he received his first lessons in painting from his father, Jan Hendrik van Rossum du Chattel. Thereafter he attended the Teekenschool in The Hague and worked for the Hague Impressionist Willem Maris at the latter’s studio.

Though clearly shaped by the Hague School, Van Rossum du Chattel would evolve a wholly individual and recognisable style.
