"A pupil of his father P. van Borselen and Andreas Schelfhout, he painted mostly landscapes, drawing inspiration from water-endowed areas around The Hague like Gouda, Zoetermeer and Stompwijk. Contemporaries appreciated his landscapes for being typically Dutch or Southern Dutch, in fact. In particular, the way in which he captured water, reeds and tall trees whipped up by gusts of wind won much admiration. He was a teacher of Th.EA. de Bock."
