THE IMPORTANT DUTCH ARTIST THAT YOU HAVE PROBABLY NEVER HEARD OF

Almost all of Schelfhout's work comprised winter landscapes more typical of the 18th Century Dutch School.  Very few of his works were of scenes such as seen above. This is one of his earlier, more detailed paintings prior to his visit to Paris in 1830 where he fell under the spell of the French Romantic landscape tradition that resulted in a rather more nebulous quality to his work.

Schelfhout was originally a gilder and frame-maker, but early in life he was apprenticed to a professional interior decorator and painter. During this period he began to paint landscapes and found that he could easily sell these and so took up this work full time. Not having been formally trained in an academy and not being a member of any professional clique or group he never became as well known as some of his contemporaries. Nevertheless his talent was such that his work was equal to or better than most of the artists of his day, this being a typical example of his fine output.

Andreas Schelfhout was born February 16th, 1787 in The Hague and returned there for most of his professional life. He died April 19th, 1870. His works can be found in many European national galleries including The National Gallery, London and the Rijksmuseum, Amsterdam.
