About the Artist

Kasparus (Kasper) Karsen was a Dutch artist. At young age his uncle, the artist George Westenberg, trained Karsen. Later on he got classes of the painter Hendrik ten Cate at the municipal academy.

Karsen mainly specialized in cityscapes and rivers views in a classic, romantic style. He combined reality with fantasy in his work to create an entirely new whole. Elements of ancient’s cities he came across during his journeys, such as towers, squares and bridges can all be traced in his work.
