The Thunderstorm, Johannes Tavenraat, 1843

oil on panel, h 31.0cm × w 39.8cm. More details

The rapid, powerful brushwork of this landscape makes it look more like an oil sketch than a finished painting. As such, Tavenraat deviated from the path taken by most Dutch painters at the time. Instead of a smooth painting style and restrained sentiment, he opted for bright colours and dramatic effects of light and dark. His work thus more closely reflects international, mainly French, developments in Romantic painting.
