Wouterus Verschuur   Amsterdam 1812-1874 Vorden

Description: Wouterus Verschuur Amsterdam 1812-1874 Vorden The refreshment, oil on canvas 40 x 60 cm, signed l.l. provenance: auction Mak van Waay, Amsterdam, 22 Dec. 1942, lot no. 210 (with illustration); P.J. Thelen, Köln-Mülheim, Duitsland; private collection Germany. In his time Wouterus Verschuur was an acclaimed painter of horses. From his teacher, the livestock artist P.G. van Os, he learned to capture their physique and movement to perfection. As a true-born romanticist he was also interested in their character, thereby painting powerful carthorses in their stable, thoroughbred saddled horses during an afternoon ride or harnessed horses in action. Verschuur was also a clever painter of dogs and these appear in most of his paintings. The painter lived in Haarlem between 1858 and 1868, where he taught Anton Mauve. He also instructed his son Wouterus Jr, who like his father specialised in painting horses. insurance value: € 95,000.- starting bid: € 52,000.-

Adrianus Eversen   Amsterdam 1818-1897 Delft

Description: Adrianus Eversen Amsterdam 1818-1897 Delft A view on the Nieuwezijds Voorburgwal, Amsterdam, oil on panel 37.3 x 26.6 cm, signed l.l. and dated 1882 annotation: with the painter's declaration of authenticity on label on the reverse. Adrianus Eversen was the most gifted pupil of the townscape painter Cornelis Springer. From his master he took over the build-up of composition, treatment of detail and warm colour palette. However, he was much freer in his choice of subject matter. While Springer mainly painted ‘portraits’ of existing buildings or parts of a town, Eversen usually arranged his villages and narrow streets in order to create a charming townscape. insurance value: € 22,000.- starting bid: € 12,000.-

Johannes ‘Jan’ Weissenbruch   The Hague 1822-1880

Description: Johannes ‘Jan’ Weissenbruch The Hague 1822-1880 Figures on the fishmarket of Woudrichem with the Hoftoren, oil on panel 30.9 x 25.7 cm, signed l.r. literature: compare Pieter A. Scheen, ‘Lexicon Nederlandse Beeldende Kunstenaars 1750-1880’, The Hague 1981, illustration 125; Frans Kense e.a. (red.), ‘Verkeer en vervoer in Brabant 1814-1940’, Tilburg 2013, illustrated in colour p. 31. The Hoftoren was demolished in 1852. The ‘waterpoort’ is on the right. Jan Weissenbruch was one of the key exponents of realism in Dutch landscape painting in the 1950s and 60s. He studied at the Royal Academy of Art in The Hague, and afterwards concentrated specifically on painting scenes from street life in the Netherlands’ old cities, and in towns situated on the major rivers. Although Weissenbruch’s work is rooted in the romantic tradition, he is gradually moving away from this style, favouring a more impressionistic approach. He has an eye for light and atmosphere, aspects that were further developed by the artists of the Hague School. insurance value: € 33,000.- starting bid: € 17,500.-

Petrus van Schendel   Terheijden 1806-1870 Brussels

Description: Petrus van Schendel Terheijden 1806-1870 Brussels Buying game on a moonlit market, oil on panel 39.8 x 32.7 cm painted ca. 1845-1850 provenance: private collection Germany. With certificate of authenticity from Dr. Jan de Meere, Boutersem, Belgium, January 2010. Belgian-Dutch painter Petrus van Schendel achieved great renown with his moonlit landscapes and night market scenes, which featured candles and open fires as the only light sources. The genre was a response to romantic collectors’ fascination for darkness and the mysterious forces of nature. People were so amazed by his candlelit scenes that they earned him the nickname of ‘Monsieur Chandelle’ in France. Van Schendel also painted biblical scenes, as well as several portraits. insurance value: € 32,000.- starting bid: € 17,500.-
