Dutch Canal, Rijswijk

Jacob Maris Dutch

Not on view

Maris, like Israëls, was one of the most esteemed artists of the Hague School, which sometimes has been characterized as fostering a renaissance of the Dutch Golden Age. The motif of the bridge in this scene recalls the seventeenth-century works of Adriaen van Ostade and Jacob van Ruisdael. Yet the large scale, sombre palette, broad areas of color, and handling of light update the subject. Maris painted, drew, and etched many versions of this image to satisfy the demands of private collectors.
