Notes

Andreas Schelfhout was, together with Wijnand Nuyen and Barend Koekkoek, of crucial importance to the development of the Dutch Romantic School in the 19th century.

He was and still is seen as one of the best landscape painters of the period and made this genre popular again, as it had been before, in the 17th century. His summer- and winter landscapes, seascapes and beach scenes, were, and still are very sought after.

His success can be explained in part by his fabulous technique and fine brush; the way he depicts (frozen) rivers, blocks of ice and winter or summer skies is unsurpassed.  This is combined with a great sense form composition.

Schelfhout was an example for many. Among his pupils were Jan Willem van Borselen, Frans Breuhaus de Groot, Joseph Gerardus Hans, Cornelis Petrus ‘t Hoen, Johan Barthold Jongkind, Lodewijk  Kleyn, Jan Weissenbruch and Charles Leickert.
