|Anton Mauve, winterlandscape 1885-1887|
Last week I saw an exhibition which showed the best Dutch modernist painters and it was very beautiful and divers. There was a little overlap sometimes with the other exhibition I just saw about the Dutch painters in Paris, but the focus was of course different.
This exhibition began with painters like Anton Mauve, who went outside to paint nature, just like the French painters from Barbizon.
The Dutch painters went to Paris and were inspired by Impressionism. Painters like George Breitner and Isaac Israels were knows as the Amsterdam Impressionists, since they painted scenes from the big city.
