Hendrik Willem Mesdag

Marine

v. 1868-1900

During the summer of 1868 Hendrik Willem Mesdag became interested in what was to be his main source of inspiration for the rest of his career: the sea. Shortly after, in May 1869, he moved to The Hague, where many artists gathered. There, he studied the sea from Scheveningen, a district of the city situated along the shores of the North Sea. This lovely watercolour is representative of the seascapes for which Mesdag is renowned.
