The Dead Artists Gallery presents “Three Small Barbizon Paintings: Harbor Scene 2”

O/Mahogany Panel

 Signed L/R “G. H. (George Hendrik) Breitner” (1857-1923) and again in label attached to verso

 Breitner belonged to the Hague School of Realists. He specialized in city-scapes and harbor-scapes with occasional character studies. Breitner eventually became interested in using photography to capture the movement of rain and water, and used it as a reference material when painting. In 1882, Breitner sketched with unknown Dutch artist Vincent Van Gogh, and introduced the him to the novels of Emile Zola, which would become instrumental in the art historical trajectory of social realism.
