Lake near Loosdrecht, Willem Roelofs (I), 1887

canvas, h 30cm × w 45cm More details

From the inscription ‘effet de matin’, it is clear that Roelofs made this painting in the early morning. The painter devoted great attention to the shimmer-ing and sparkling of the sky and the reflective surface of the water. As he himself wrote: ‘Far more difficult than expressing the colour of the sky is to render its curvature and the vibrating play of the atmosphere.’
