The Sea, Jan Toorop, 1887

The Sea, Jan Toorop, 1887

oil on canvas, h 74.7cm × w 65.9cm More details

Jan Toorop made this seascape in Katwijk, where he was living in 1887. It is painted partly with a paintbrush and partly with a palette knife, as can be seen in the flat strokes. Through this technique, he succeeded in suggesting the effect of the waves breaking on the seashore in a realistic, almost tangible way. But if you look more closely, you can see a fantastic medley of colours.
