Drawbridge at Noorden, Johan Hendrik Weissenbruch, c. 1890

brush, h 543mm × w 740mm. More details

After 1875, Weissenbruch visited the village of Noorden near Nieuwkoop Lake every summer, to draw studies in the open. Although these large format watercolours seem to be outdoor paintings, they were in fact made at the artist’s studio. In this watercolour, Weissenbruch renders the reflection of the light in the water with especial subtlety. It leaves the viewer with the feeling of being able almost to step into the landscape.
