About the artwork


Provenance: private collection Germany

A gifted artist, Jan Hillebrand Wijsmuller studied painting for one year under Nicolaas van der Waay at the Rijksacademie in Amsterdam. In 1877 he switched to the academy in The Hague, where the artistic climate was dominated by the Hague School and painters such as Willem Roelofs, the three Maris brothers, Mesdag and Gabriël. He then spent several years at Brussels' Academie voor Schone Kunsten before returning to the Netherlands to devote himself to painting the regions around Amsterdam and The Hague, with their many lakes, streams and canals. Wijsmuller is usually associated with the late flowering of the Hague School.
