Winter Landscape, Willem Witsen, c. 1885 - c. 1922

canvas, h 45cm × w 52cm. More details

Witsen was an Amsterdam painter, but moved to rural Ede when he was married. He made a series of winter landscapes there. His style is characterized by subdued use of colour and a simple composition. The grey-blue sky and the snow-white field are separated by a horizontal strip with farms, violet blue trees and blue green hills. He delicately painted the treetops, possibly with a fan brush.
