The painter Jan Voerman senior belonged to the group of 19th century artists called the 'Amsterdam impressionists'. His paintings, his watercolours in particular, are known for their sensitive atmosphere. This watercolour (signed lower right) is a good example of his widely acknowledged talent. Jan Voerman has his own museum in Hattum (Holland).
