White Cow, Willem Maris, c. 1880 - c. 1910

oil on panel, h 27cm × w 37cm. More details

Willem Maris may have used this small painting as a preparatory study for several of his large compositions with a cow. From the cow’s contours, it is clear that it was painted in light colours over a dark brown ground. Willem Maris was the only artist in his group who consistently worked in this way. Most Hague School painters used a light ground.
