Jan Jacob Spohler

Nederhorst den Berg 1811 – 1866 Amsterdam

A Dutch winter landscape with figures on the ice

Oil on panel  40.7 x 56.5 cm

Signed lower left


The winter landscape pictured here is one of Spohler’s best. It is finely and clearly crafted, and bursting with atmosphere. The cloudy sky is built up in thin transparent layers of paint and wonderfully thorough. There is plenty to see, too. On the left a house with meticulous details, such as the last vestiges of snow on its pitched roof. And, of course, all the characteristic elements of this genre: a horse-drawn sleigh, skaters, a windmill and a barge trapped in the ice. The red jackets of the human figures add a lively touch of colour.
