About the artwork

Literature: vgl.: D. Welling, 'Floris Arntzenius', Den Haag 1992, image pag. 64; Nelly de Zwaan, 'Nederland uit de kunst: 365 dagen kijken en lezen', Warnsveld 2005, 11 sept. (colour image).

Exhibition: Hoorn, Westfries Museum, 'La Hollande Pittoresque', 27 sept. 2012-11 nov. 2012.

Floris Arntzenius trained at the Rijksacademie, Amsterdam, along with Isaac Israels, Willem Witsen and G.H. Breitner, whose impressionist style of painting he hugely admired. After a further year’s study at the art academy in Antwerp, the painter concentrated on making landscapes and city scenes. He only gained real success with his work when he moved to The Hague and began painting spontaneous impressions of the city’s bustling life, preferably in misty or rainy conditions. He painted landscapes, beaches with figures and portraits as well.
