Item description for J. H. Weissenbruch 1824-1903 by Edwin Jacobs...
J. H. Weissenbruch was one of the leading members of the Hague School. This richly illustrated book approaches its subject from an artistic rather than an art-historical perspective. Painter Jan Andriesse has selected various works by Weissenbruch that focus on his unique, painterly qualities and in particular on his treatment of light. It was a technique he had mastered to perfection.
The text has been compiled in collaboration with writers, essayists, philosophers, visual artists, and experts in various fields of the arts. Contributions are included from Marjan van Heteren, Hans Janssen, Nicolaas Matsier, Marcel Vos, Jan Andriesse, Jan Roeland, and many others. The book's contemporary approach leads to a unique appreciation of the artist's work.
