Cellar of the Artist’s Home in The Hague, Johan Hendrik Weissenbruch, 1888

Cellar of the Artist’s Home in The Hague, Johan Hendrik Weissenbruch, 1888

canvas, h 39cm × w 51cm. More details

On rainy days even a Hague School artist could not work outside. Weissenbruch would then turn to his own house, painting views of the cellar, attic and courtyard. Such paintings allowed him to study the effect of light and the resulting range of colours. A few green cabbage leaves on the tile floor enliven the otherwise subdued palette.

On display in room 1.18
