A Frozen Canal near the River Maas, Andreas Schelfhout, 1867

A Frozen Canal near the River Maas, Andreas Schelfhout, 1867

oil on canvas, h 70cm × w 107cm. More details

This winter landscape presents a typically Dutch river scene: a panoramic, tranquil world almost devoid of colour. The activity on the ice creates a cheerful accent. Schelfhout specialized in this genre. His frozen winter scenes, which allude to the 17th century, were extremely popular. They were even called ‘little Schelfhouts’.
