THE IMPORTANT DUTCH ARTIST THAT YOU HAVE PROBABLY NEVER
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.
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.
