Footnotes

  • Provenance
    Sale, Christie's Amsterdam, 11 May 2011, lot 92

    Initially working in the family framing business, Andreas Schelfhout's father soon realised the artistic potential of his son, and sent him to be taught painting by Joannes Breckenheimer (1772–1856), a stage designer, who also lived in The Hague. Inspired by the work of great Dutch landscape painters before him, notably that of Jacob van Ruisdael (1628-1682), Schelfhout started his own workshop in 1815 and his reputation quickly grew beyond The Hague. In 1818, he became a member of the Royal Academy for Visual Arts of Amsterdam, was awarded a gold medal in 1819 at an exhibition in Antwerp, and made a Fourth Class Correspondent of the Royal Dutch Institute in 1822. He travelled to France, England and Germany between 1833 and 1835, during which time he was influenced by the freer style of French Romantic landscape painters and his palette after this time became noticeably warmer in tone. The majority of his works were Dutch landscapes, both summer and winter scenes, with his style influencing the artists of generations to come, notably the students of The Hague Academy, where his pupils included Charles Leickert (1816-1907) and Nicholas Johannes Roosenboom (1805-1880).
