Landscape with a Thunderstorm Brewing, Willem Roelofs (I), 1850

Landscape with a Thunderstorm Brewing, Willem Roelofs (I), 1850

canvas, h 90.2cm × w 139.8cm. More details

This is a truly Romantic landscape, full of drama and stark contrasts. The horseman holds onto his hat, while seeking shelter from the imminent thunder-storm. The last rays of sun still shine on the ground, but the storm and the rain are advancing quickly. Roelofs’ approach in this early work is still Romantic: later he opted for a more realistic rendering of the landscape.

On display in room 1.14 Romanticism
